    How can I allow users to deselect a radio button in a matrix with multiple rows?

    Asked by ttbj on July 31, 2015 at 11:42 AM

    How can I use a matrix with radio buttons so that:

    -At least one radio button in the matrix must be selected by the user,

    -The user does not have to select a radio button in each row,

    -The user cannot select more than one option within a row, and

    -Users can deselect any radio button?

    I've tried the check box option, but it allows multiple selections within a row.

    rows deselect allow

    -At least one radio button in the matrix must be selected by the user

    In the field properties, set the required field "Require at least one answer":

     

    -The user does not have to select a radio button in each row

    Unfortunately, this is not possible to disable. A user can select an option in each row. A workaround would be to add another column for "NA" so you would know that they don't select any.

     

    -The user cannot select more than one option within a row, and

    You already have the radio button option and that did it.

     

    -Users can deselect any radio button?

    -This is not possible since you are using Radio Button. So again, a workaround would be to add NA so you would know that they don't select nothing.

     

    I hope that works for you. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks
