Checkboxes is a closed-ended field type where people can select any number of answers from a list of choices.
The following limits apply when you create a Checkboxes field:
- Each answer choice must be 150 characters or less.
- The maximum number of answer choices you can add to a Checkboxes field depends on the overall number of fields on your form. Each answer choice counts as one field, so you need to be aware of overall field limit.
The Checkboxes field type supports the following Field Settings:
- Require an Answer
- Max Quantities
- Admin Only Field
- Pre-Populate Values
- Import Predefined Choices — there's a workaround for Checkboxes!
- Instructions for User
- CSS Layout Keywords
The Field Layout setting controls the layout of the answer choices—see Multiple Choice for examples.
