    Hi, we have a form for our school lunch program.  https://form.jotform.com/52444801771959

    Is it possible to deselect an item once it is selected.  Right now if the user makes and incorrect selection.  They have to get out of the form and start over, in order for that selection to be removed.

     

    For example they select a line item for a date and then want it to be blank for that date.  Is that possible?

     

    Thanks

     

    Tina

    Ah, I believe you are referring to clearing out an option in the Matrix Field if that is correct?

    Unfortunately though, that's not possible with Radio Inputs because they are designed to only accept one immediate input value.

    However, you can easily resolve this issue by switching the Input Option to a Checkbox.

    If it is changed to a check box, can they select more than one?

    Yes, switching your subscription to a checkbox would allow users to select multiple answers.

     

    Please see this Matrix Demo Comparison Form:
