    Single Vs. Multiple Checkboxes opening different fields

    Asked by djboxxybrown on May 08, 2016 at 02:20 PM

    I can't figure out how to create this condition...
    When only one check box is selected (any checkbox) I open up a new field, this I can create.

    However, I want to create a separate rule where I have 4 or more checkbox options and when any of the two or more check-boxes are selected it opens up a different field.

    And the field that opens with only one check box doesn't open.

    Is it possible to create this condition?

    Thank you!

    It is possible by using a workaround. 

    1. Add 1 as calculation value to the checkbox options:

    2. Add a form calculation field and add the checkbox field to the formula (the field can be hidden):


    3. Add a condition that if the calculation field is equal to 1 show field A:


    4. Add a condition that if the calculation field is greater than 1 show field B

    You can test and clone the demo form:
