New Feature checkbox: update automatically selected attribute when you change the options

    If I create a checkbox field, the default is Option 1, Option 2, Option 3. 

    Editing is easy. However, the changes do not take effect unless you close the settings. To create a preset choice, you have to close and open properties a second time.


    Create a Checkbox. Go to properties. Change Option 1, Option 2, Option 3 to Yes, No. 

    Go to the Selected box to default Yes and Option 1, Option 2, Option 3 still shows. I now have to close settings, click the field, choose properties, scroll down and then choose Yes.

    Is there a way to make this a single step?

    If I understand you correctly you would like jotform to update other properties automatically once you have changed the options, as shown in the image below. I am not sure is this is possible but will request this feature to our team so they may analyze and see if it can be implemented.

    Thanks Victor, you understand correctly. 

    Nice animated capture too. It shows all the steps I was hoping to bypass with a single edit.
