    How to select Check Box items with conditions

    Asked by visier on April 21, 2015 at 03:33 PM

    Can I keep users from selecting certain checkboxes?

    I have a form that has 5 options to choose from however i need 3 of them to be checked automatically based on a condition and the other 2 will be selected by the user. Is there a way to do this?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It seems that you have solved the issue by selecting the Check Box items in form builder.

    Alternatively, it is possible to use 'Update a form field value' conditions to select the items. The names should be comma separated and they should be identical to the Check Box item names.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Oh cool! thanks, but is there a way to lock the check box so that it cannot be unchecked after that condition is applied?
