    How can I separate multiple check box options into separate columns on the excel export?

    Asked by miriamschool on August 27, 2015 at 11:38 AM

    I am asking people to choose from 3 different workshops that they can attend.  When I view the submissions in Jotform it lists all three choices in one column...is there a way to control how the system outputs the registrant's choice?  I want each check box option to be in its own column...

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately, this is not currently an option. You cannot split data to the multiple columns from a single field.

    Your solution with multiple fields is correct.

    We have also sent a feature request ticket to our Development Team to implement alternative data presentation models, and hope it will be implemented at some point.
