    Is it possible to add a other option for checkboxes in the same way it is done with radio buttons?

    Oops, i dont think i was clear. I dont want to add another option i want to add the choice of "other" where the user of the form can select other and then enter some text.

    As in this option that is availible in radio buttons

    So for example it could look like this

    I created my own "other" feature just by making "other" the 4th option (in your case) and then adding a text field underneath for the explanation. Works well for me. Not quite as compact as most I've seen but it does the job.

    @Suprawill1, Thank you for sharing your solution. It is also possible to use Show condition to show the Other text box only when the Other drop down option is selected.

    Example: http://form.jotform.com/form/20513309877

    Thats what i currently do, but my forms have over 50 conditions in them now, which makes it overly bulky

    I'm sorry though as this feature is still not yet implemented. However, I have asked one of our developers about this, hopefully we can get a time frame for this feature request. We'll update you via this thread.

    Thank you so much for patiently waiting. Have a pleasant day!
