    Can a checklist have multiple styles of formatting?

    Asked by gconsted on December 12, 2014 at 03:57 PM

    I am trying to create a checklist for the facility.  On one of my "exterior light" forms, I was wondering if I could have the first two columns as radio or check buttons and the next one as a comment box?

    The reason I for this is I would like to have all the lights and locations listed on the left like a normal checklist.  Then I would like the next two columns to be "Working" or "Need Replacing".  My only problem is, I would like a third column with a text box, allowing me to explain what is wrong if the "Need Replacing" box is checked.  I know you can add a text box at the bottom but I would rather have the text associated with the problem on the same line so there is no confusion.

    As of right now I have my whole checklist in a text box format so that each line requires typing "good" or "bad".  Does anyone know if I can do part checklist and part text box in the same section?

     

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to have multiple input options using matrix tool. As a workaround, you may try using the native checkboxes/radiobuttons allowing other option for each question.

    Here is the custom CSS code injected to the JotForm to align the text box with radio buttons.

    #cid_33 > div > span.form-radio-item,

    #cid_30 > div > span.form-radio-item,

    #cid_31 > div > span.form-radio-item,

    #cid_32 > div > span.form-radio-item{

    clear:none !important;

    }

    The ids can be taken from taken from the website inspector.

    The output can be shown as below.

    Hope this information helps. let us know if you have any questions in this regard. We will be glad to help.
