    Hello sixtowns,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. You can take advantage of our "Update a form field value" condition feature to automatically select the radio button option. Please check the screenshot below on how to add such conditions:

     

    Hope this helps.

    Do try out to add condition in your form and get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hi I have tried this and it works, however it allows the user to uncheck the box at will, is there any way to stop the user unchecking it?

    Also using this method means other radio options the user may choose become unchecked

    hi sixtowns

    maybe you could add a new condition - to disable the radio buttons if the dropdown value = Yes. 

    (this way, the Priority Account option will automatically be selected while disabling the radio buttons field and not allowing your customers to select other options)

    just a thought. can't try it out as i'm on the road.

    We want users to select other radio options; I just want the other options to remain checked if the user answers YES the previous question.

    So the user can answer yes to the previous questions > Priority account automatically becomes checked, and the user cannot uncheck it if the answer to the previous question remains YES.

     

    But I also want user to be able to select other radios options i.e. Christmas Account, Current account even if the it if the answer to the previous question remains YES.

    After considering possible workarounds, my suggestion would be to use a separate radio button field for each option. That way none of the selected options would interfere with any of the others. Perhaps there's a better way but I'm currently "drawing a blank".

    Thanks

    Correction check box field, not radio button field.
