    How to create additional fillable field next to check box

    Asked by Simon_Z on May 23, 2014 at 04:21 AM


    I have one problem with designing my own survey.

    In my survey, I want to ask one question with check boxes. However, I can't create additional fillable field next to (or below) this check box. Is that even possible or not? Below you have an example of what I mean.

    QUESTION: Which medical condition do you presently have?

    ANSWER #1 (checkbox): celiac disease
    ANSWER #2 (checkbox): low back pain
    ANSWER #3 (checkbox): hypertension

    If somebody checks a checkbox for "hypertension", I wanted him to fill additional field (which I want to be next or below "hypertension checkbox") where she/he tells me the numbers of lower and upper blood pressure. But as far as I know, this is not possible. Am I right?

    Thank you!

    Hello Simon,

    You can add one "Textbox" field and add condition to show/hide this textbox if the hypertension is selected.

    Please take a look at the following demo form which I have created:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41421981736962? If you select "Hypertension" checkbox, you will see a textbox appears next to the question. I added the following condition:

    Feel free to clone this form in your account for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
