    CHECK BOX and OTHER

    Asked by bsmall on August 25, 2010 at 05:38 PM

    Using a list with the CHECK BOX form tool.

    It has the CHECK ALL THAT APPLIES to it.

    One of the choices is OTHER.  I'd like for my clients to be able to elaborate after checking OTHER.

    How do I accomplish this using CHECK BOX rather than RADIO BUTTON?  Can't use RADIO BUTTON, because I need my end-user to have the option of selecting more than just one choice.

    How did you figure this out? The checkboxes do not have Other option. It is only available on the radio buttons.

    Did you just create a new question and used Conditions to show/hide it?
