    Can the Checklist Widget selection show up on separate lines?

    Asked by sdmform on March 06, 2015 at 02:00 AM

    I am using the checklist widget and the submission results in multiple choices ending up in the same string without a carriage return between items that were selected.

    Can this be fixed or is there another way to do this?  Or a workaround?   It is hard to read the submissions when the checkbox choices are complex.

    Thank you!!

    Unfortunately, that's how the selection would appear in the backend. Let me submit a request about this to our widget team. If there are updates, you should know it via this thread.

    For now, a workaround would be to use our Checkbox field in the Form Tools section:

    Just to update you about this matter, right now the selections would appear like this:


    And I have requested it to our developers to be like this, the selected options are in the new line:

    Thank you!

    Yes, that is what I'm experiencing... the checkbox values to run together in a string.

    It would be amazing and seem to be more intuitive and clean for the selected option values to be on separate lines in the submission.

    Thank you for your response and I hope you're developers see it more useful that was as well.
