    How do I create additional check boxes under an existing check box?

    Asked by blessedsacramentwichita on October 30, 2015 at 05:16 PM

    I would like to list out the possible sports that a person who has interest in coaching could chose by putting check boxes under the check box of coaching.

    Also I can't figure out why parts of the list are not aligned to the left like the first two portions.

    Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately, we do not have such feature or widget that has that layout.

    A workaround is to use two separate checkboxes and apply show condition that if a specific option on the first checkbox is selected, show another checkbox field.

    Here's how:

    1. Assuming that you have already created the two checkbox fields.

    2. Create a show/hide condition


    Another solution is to list all the options in a single checkbox field and put indentions on the sub-options so they'll look like the following. You can add indent margins by injecting custom CSS codes to your form.

    If you like this solution, let us know so we can assist you with the CSS codes.
