Adding a License Agreement to a Form

October 12, 2021

We now have these cool widgets that achieve the same thing. Try them out as easier alternatives:

1. Short Scrollable Terms Widget

2. Terms & Conditions Widget

The following method no longer works due to the restriction of HTML within the field labels or options. Please consider using the one of the above widgets.

Sometimes you may need to check if a user agrees with your licensing conditions. This needs to be conducted in a professional manner. Don’t worry; adding a license agreement to a form is an easy task with JotForm. Let’s say you want to create a terms and conditions link within a checkbox field. Here is how it would look like:

Follow the steps below to add a license agreement link in a Checkbox field:

1. Add a MULTIPLE CHOICE (or a CHECKBOX) field to your form.

2. Click the GEAR icon to open its properties.

3. Go to the OPTIONS tab.

4. Delete the default options and replace it with the following:

This is the basic code for adding a hyperlink. You should modify the code above by replacing the href value of the link so it points to your own Terms and Conditions page.

5. Afterwards, go to the GENERAL tab > remove the QUESTION TEXT (Field Label) > then toggle the REQUIRED option to ON.

Here is an example of a form that can only be submitted if the Terms and Conditions checkbox was ticked:

This should be all you need to know to add a license agreement to your form. If you encountered any problems, please let us know below.
