    I think you would like two things:

    1. "Accept Terms of Conditions" checkbox where the user has to check to be able to submit the form.

    2. A written text of terms of conditions or a link to the terms page.

    You will need to use two separate form fields for these:

    1. For "Accept Terms of Conditions" checkbox, use a "Checkbox" field. It is under the default field list. Then select that question and select "Required" from the toolbar.

     

    2. For the terms and conditions text, use the "Free Text (HTML)" option under "Power Tools" toolbox on the left side.

    Hi! I am trying to do the same thing, but I am legally required to have the "terms and conditions" be unchecked by default. Is there a way to do this?

    Have you tried my instructions above? What was the problem?

    Originally I was unable to have the terms and conditions check box be unchecked by default (but still required).

    I think the problem was in that my option had no text associated with it. (The options's header text said "Yes, I have read and agree to the Official Rules.", but the actual option had no text. Once I changed the option's text to "Yes, I have read and agree to the Official Rules." I was given the option to have it unchecked. Thanks!
