    I'm trying to force users to check "yes" to agree to our privacy policy

    Asked by alicewolke on May 11, 2016 at 03:09 PM

    Hi! I'm trying to force users to check "yes" to agree to our privacy policy before they submit their forms -- I don't want them to be able to submit without checking yes. How do I structure the conditional logic to require this?

    Would it be better to have only a "yes" checkbox instead of yes/no?

    This is formID=61224190986156

    I see that your JotForm is having a single checkbox which is a required field. Since the field is a required field, the user cannot submit the form without selecting the option. 

    You may also use the Terms and Condition widget on your JotForm to achieve your requirement.

    Please refer to the guide below with step-by-step instructions in this regard.
