‘Choose Multiple’ fields are checkbox style fields. These allow the user to view a number of options at once, and allow multiple selections. If you want users to be able to select only one option, you should use a Choose One field instead.
To add a Choose Multiple field to your form, click the Choose Multiple Field in the available fields section on the left-hand side of the screen and drag it to the appropriate place on your form.
While editing your field, click ‘Show Advanced Options’ to configure some of the below options for this field.
Every field has some unique advanced settings specific to its field type. There are however some common advanced settings that are regularly used across multiple field types.
- Question (Label): Entering a value in this field will override the ‘Question (Name)’ field as the question shown to users on the form. If you’d like to have multiple fields with the same question shown, you can set different ‘Question (Name)’ for internal reference, and have the same ‘Question (Label)’ across multiple fields.
- Hide the question: Ticking this will show the field for the user to type in, without showing the field question.
- Default answer: Inserts a default answer in to the field. This is useful to have an answer selected even if the user doesn’t specifically fill out this field.
- Further instructions: Add some informative text just below the field.
- Show choices: Decide whether you want the choices to appear side by side (good for only a few choices), or stacked in a list (good for larger lists).
- Conditional logic: This can be turned on to show/hide this field under certain conditions based on answers to other fields. Read more on conditional logic here.
