    How put checkbox on left side of Question?

    Asked by carlconcretedirt on January 30, 2012 at 02:21 AM


    I have a bunch of individual yes/no questions (which are all quite lengthy in their wording). I'd like to create a list of questions which looks like a bullet list, except the bullets are checkboxes. I'd like to be able to indent selected questions - some are sub-questions of the preceding question. Please see attached (the bullets are supposed to be checkboxes).

    I tried using the checkbox field with a blank 'question' and instead putting my question a single 'option'. But I don't like this because when I receive the email results I don't get clear indication of whether the question was answered YES.

    In the time being I have used a) checkbox questions, with no options, (and the checkbox is on the right) b) Jotform's Matrix to handle the sub-questions. I'm using a little bit of html to bold the 'main' questions, although there is no indentation of the sub-questions.

    Here's my actual form

    <script type="text/javascript" src="//form.jotform.com/jsform/20280028482"></script>

    Thank you

    You should probably get the full form source code for the form, copy that to your web site, then indent them there. 

    Here is how you can get the full form source code. Open your form on the Form Builder:

    1. Open "Setup & Embed" tab on toolbar,

    2. Click on "Embed Form"

    3. Click on "Source" and copy the HTML code provided to your web site..
