    Multiple selections in radio buttons?

    Asked by chediski on July 21, 2016 at 08:46 AM

    Hi. Is there a way where someone can pick multiple answers for a radio button choice or some tool that does that? I attached a screen grab. When I test it, I can only make one selection and as you see in the attachment there may be times where I need the ability to have more than one thing selected. Thank you.

    Hello! If your aim is to allow your users multiple selections, then please use checkboxes instead of radio buttons.

    Radio buttons are only useful when you want to restrict your users to pick only one of the options listed.

    Here's a demo form utilizing the items you listed on your screenshot https://jotform.com/62023692929966

    Don't hesitate to get back to us if you need more help. :)
