    How do I create a field for 'please specify' when an opion is clicked?

    Asked by puretaxation on February 27, 2015 at 11:01 AM

    e.g I'm doing a question about what the respondent's pension includes. Options such as:


    Company Car
    Housing allowance
    Private Medical Insurance
    Death in Service
    Season Ticket Loan
    School Fees
    Cash Equivalent (please specify)


    I need there to be a box that appears when 'cash equivalent' is ticked that asks the user to specify the amount.


    Please can you help?
