    I would like to add a third column with check boxes to a table so that respondents can note if their answer is exact or estimate. How can I do that?

    The default Matrix field can only accept a single input type.  You could setup a second matrix next to the first one with checkboxes instead of text boxes. I setup a quick test form to show what that would look like:


    This can be modified to make it look cleaner.

    Or, you could use something like our configurable list widget:


    This will allow you to have multiple field types in the same widget.  Slightly different setup than that matrix however.
