Has anyone found a way of setting up a form and having a multiple choice question which allows the lead to choose a limited number of options? i.e. Here's a list of 10 things, choose three.
Any ideas how this could work?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do you want it to do something special?
Depends what you mean by special
We do want to use the answers they choose in sales alerts and other campaigns, so I'd love to keep it within Marketo if possible.
Well, SM integration would keep it in Marketo, but it's expensive.
You would need a field for every single response in this case. You could do a multi select too I suppose, but I don't like using those in Marketo because it ends up as a single text with semi-colon separator. Gets messy.
Search my recent posts -- too busy to do the search right now -- to see where someone asked about using independent checkboxes (i.e. indie lead fields) but having a minimum/maximum number of overall selections. I demonstrated how to do this with a little JS.
Were you able to find a solution for this? We also have a similar requirement where we want users to only be able to select their top 3 choices from many options. Tried searching for Sanford Whitemans solution but no luck so far.
Any help would be really great.
I can find it for you later. To be clear about the UX, you want people to select 3 choices, but what happens if they try to click a 4th? (Recommendation: you disable the remaining checkboxes then they have reached their max.)
I'd say the 2 interpretations of "maximum number of choices" are would be [a] disable remaining checkboxes if they have the max checked or [b] let them keep re-selecting past 3 and automatically unselect the -- first? last? -- one they checked. [a] is less surprising behavior IMO.
