    How to limit check box items selections

    Asked by kingfisherweddings on March 31, 2015 at 01:53 PM

    Is there a way i can have users select a limited number of check boxes for a given question?

    I have say a gold plan which allows only 5 boxes to be checked and a silver plan where only 3 are allowed. Is there a condition which will pop up or error message when a user selects say the silver plan but trys to select more than 3 boxes in the next question?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Yes, we can use a Maximum Selections option to set the selections limit. You will need to use separate Check Box fields for silver and gold plans in this case. Also, set the Show conditions to display corresponding fields. Please see the next animation.
