    Is it possible to save data for each list item in a checkbox field into their own unique columns?

     

    For the sake of running frequencies it would be nice.

    Please let me inform you there is no a default method to assign one column per each item/option of the Check Box fields currently.

    A workaround that you may consider is to create separated checkboxes for each item/option so that it can use separated columns in the excel file:

    Result: 

    However, I have forwarded your request to our next level support so that theyc an consider your suggestion and if they think it is feasible and if there are more people asking for this feature, then they can implement it, but we do not promise anything.

    You will get the update via this thread if this capability is implemented.

    Thanks

    Such a feature would we very welcome!! The actual workaround to count the frequency of certain value (http://www.jotform.com/answers/327558-How-to-delimit-checkbox-radio-data-in-Excel) is way to complex.
