    How to add a fillable text box next to a check box

    Asked by Rebecka58 on August 17, 2015 at 08:20 AM

    I need to be able to have the customer add their own text if they select one of our non-stock products. The heading of that particular item will be 'Quartz - Other manufacturer' 


    It should look like this:


    Quartz - Other manufacturer     (text box to right of this verbiage where they can fill in product name)


    How do I do this?

    You just have to enable the "Allow Other" option. It is on the top toolbar on the check box properties.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    This I did know. What I need is to be able to add a fillable text box on the same line as the
    (checked) ‘Quartz - Other’
    I’ve attached a screenshot of what I need. The ‘Add the text box here’ is where I need to be able to add a fillable text box for the customer to fill in what manufacturer they’re looking for as the ‘other’.
    Is this possible to do?

    A simple workaround can be adding additional text boxes to the form and display them only when these "Other" options are selected by using a condition.

    Please see the demo form below. 


    You may clone this JotForm to your account to see how it works.

    Hope this information helps!
