    Hi BiscuitFoundation,

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    You can accomplish this task with Checkboxes, Textarea, and JotForm's Conditional Logic. To further explain this, I've attached some illustrations below and hope this helps.

    First, navigate to your form. Create checkboxes for your options with a corresponding textarea for the specifications.


    Select "Show/Hide a form field" from "Conditions" under the "Setup & Embed" tab.


    And now, create your conditions. If the user chooses Arts, the textarea for arts will show, and so on.


    You can view this form in action in here You can clone it if you want.

    If you have further issues and concerns, please feel free to contact us.
