    Hi, rainbowcentre.


    There are a few ways to enable your customer to choose multiple options. In the form editor, you can go to Survey Tools and select Matrix:


    ...and you can edit that to provide options for multiple questions.


    Or, you can go to Form Tools and choose a Dropdown:

    ...which offers options.


    Or, you could use Radio Buttons:


    ...like these.


    As I mentioned, you have many options. If you like, you may find lots of helpful information on building forms here.

    That's a good advice Charles.

    Additionally, I just would like to mention that you can also use the check boxes, you will find them under the form tools option, in the form builder:

    You can also allow to select multiple options in a drop down:

    And when using the matrix field, you can choose which type of field to use:

    Hope this helps.
