Checkbox Field Element

Last Update: January 7, 2024

A Checkbox Field is used to select any number of answers from a list of choices. You can add options manually, use predefined lists, or bulk import lists. If you only want users to make one selection, use the Radio Field Element instead. See the Registration Form Dark Prebuilt Form for an example of the Checkbox Field Element in use.

How To Use The Checkbox Field Element

The Checkbox Field Element allows you to place checkboxes into your forms.

To start, add the element into your desired column in a form layout.

Go through the options to populate and configure your checkboxes. Add a label, decide if it is to be a required field, add an optional tooltip, choose whether your options are to be displayed stacked or floated etc. You can add your own options, either individually or in bulk, or you can choose from a range of pre-populated choices, such as Countries, Days of the Week, Months of the Year, U.S. States, Years, and Days of the Month.
