Remove previous Check Box selection based on user input

    The first page of my form has check box options that determine the visibility of other elements further down the form. I want to be able to de-select some or all of those options based on a selection made further down the form. Is that possible?

    Since I don't know how to make it work, I don't have anything for you to look at. The best that I can do is show you a form: and explain what I want to happen.

    1. select any or all of the check boxes
    2. in the Single Choice element, if 'No' is selected, I want all of the check boxes to be cleared.

    Hello Bradly,

    What we can do is duplicate the checkbox field and set it to hidden.


    Next, we can set a condition to copy the value of the duplicate checkbox field, which is empty, to the original one if 'No' is selected on the single-choice field.


    This should then clear all the selected checkboxes when 'No' is selected.
