    Changing existing question format (tick box to radio) without losing condition information

    Asked by BroadcastAustraliaRequirements on April 14, 2015 at 02:09 AM

    Hi there,

    We have made a form which contains check box questions that we would like to change to radio button questions without the need to re-create the logical conditions. The reason we want to change it is that, check boxes allow users to select multiple choices where as the radio button can only allow one. If there's a way to configure the check boxes to only have one selected that would be preferable?

    Thans in advance,

    If you would like to change the check boxes to to radio buttons without losing the conditions, unfortunately, it is not possible, they are of a different input type. BUT, if you are looking on limiting one selection on a check box, then that is possible. You can follow the screenshot below.

    Right click the check box field->Choose Properties->Set the "Maximum Selections" to "1".


    I hope this helps. Do let us know if this works.

    Kind regards.
