    Can users check multiple boxes using the "Radio Button"?

    Asked by nancy5800 on June 25, 2015 at 07:45 PM

    I have to use the radio button because I want the calculation to be done for payment. However, I also want the users to be able to choose more than one button (see the "Add-Ons ONLY" section of the form given below). Is this possible?

    The Radio option field is specifically design to have single selection only at a time.

    While Checkox field allows multiple selection option.

    You can actually also use Checkboxes for calculation on the Payment form. 

    You can review the user guide: -How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    It will work for either Radio button or Checkbox field

     

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.
