    Do you want to have checkbox and for example text box field inside of one field? This can be achieved with Configurable list widget

    I have also Inspected your form https://www.jotform.com/62385109028152 and I saw that you have checkbox field and hidden text box fields that will be shown if certain option from checkbox field is selected. Do you maybe want to combine answers from checkbox field and hidden text box fields? 

    You can create additional fields on your form that would be hidden and you can use conditional logic to pass values from two fields to that hidden field.

    Make sure that fields are set A-Z.

    You can set conditions like this for all your fields.
