    I want to require that all options with Checkboxes be checked before submitting the form

    Asked by suenewsham on February 12, 2012 at 05:47 PM

    I have three options within one checkbox under Rules and Regulations. I want the user to check each box. When I mark the checkbox as Required, it appears that the user can only select one option to fullful the requirement. I want all three options to be required. Is there a solution or do I need to creat three different checkboxes?

    Thank You,

    Hi Sue,

    I have cloned your form and made some changes, please clone it back to view this changes.


    What I did is, I have deleted the two other options and recreated it with separate check boxes and then applied some css codes to hide it's title.

    Let us know if you have further questions. Thank you so much!

    I'm looking for exactly the same thing except my Terms & conditions have a list of about 8 check boxes and there are two lists with only one showing based on the previous selections depending on what category they come under.  In order to have the same effect as you have made above I'd need to create a total of 16 check box fields and hide the title for each.  I would then need to create 16 or so conditions in the rules to show/hide fields based on selections made and that will get extremely complicated.

    Is there not any CSS or code that can make the entire check box question required to be filled?  Otherwise do you have any other suggestions? 

    I have thought I could just list all the conditions but I actually want the user to check each box becasue it will be more likely that they will read each condition that way.  otherwsie it's too easy for them to just check the one box to agree to all of the above.

    Would it not make sense to just keep the two different list on their separate pages, then use a single "skip to page" condition instead of adding multiple conditions to hide the items in each list?

    It's OK, thanks for your suggestions.  I do understand what you mean but the order of the questions on the entire form have the two relevant questions too far apart so that if I made it skip to the relevant set of conditions it would be skipping about half the form questions in between.  There are other show/hide conditions dependant on the same results so if I were to move the question that triggers the skip closer to the resulting page it would then put the entire form out of order.

    That sounds liek a to digest so I don't blame you if it's confusing.  I've simply done as I figured and made all the conditions part of one list then put a checkbox below it.

    I would liek to know the code to hide the title of the check box field though.  I trid to remove it by deleting the "click to edit" text in properties but I've seen it display again after a refresh (although at the moment I've had to put something relevant in there).

    Thanks again.

    Hello afaba.  You can find the ID of the tag that encloses this title and use the CSS code with value "dislplay: none;" so that it will be hidden.

    Example:  If you you're working on your form: http://www.jotform.co/form/21348581064857, you'll find that the ID of the label title is label_25.  Now you can inject the code via CSS injection with this code:

    #label_25 { display: none; }

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    It seems as of 1/2015 JotForm has updated this ability.  Right click on the section, select Show Properties, then change the Minimum Selections to match the number of check boxes they must check.

    Hi Kathryn,

    This is correct. If you check the property of checkboxes, there is now option for min/max selected option
