    Forms 2.0 Add User Input Option in Checkbox Field Type

      Hi All:

      I am working on creating a form in 2.0. I want to create a checkbox field with a set values for Option 1, Option 2, Option 3. But I also want to add a fourth option "Other" that will allow the end user to input data (text field). How would I go about doing this?

               Hi Nelly,

               To set this up, add the field for your options to your form and the field you want the "other" description to populate. Once you have entered the values for the checkboxes, select the "other" description field and click "visability rules".  There, you can enter logic to have that field appear if the "Other" checkbox value is selected.

            Hi Val,

            Thanks for your comment! My goal was to also have the values in the "Other" description populate in the same field as the checkbox options. However by going the route you suggest, I would have to create a new custom field, correct?

            Just to draw a picture of what I mean...

            Field Name = Unsubscribe Reason

            [  ] Email not relevant
            [  ] Too many
            [  ] Old email address
            [  ] Other
                [    ]  Input Area

              The cleanest way about this would be to create a new custom field.  If you wanted that information to appear all in the same field, you could append the information entered in the custom input area to the Other selection by creating the following smart campaign:

              Smart List 
              Data Value Changes - Input Area is not empty
              Flow
              Change Data Value - Unsubscribed Reason
              New Value is {{lead.unsubscribe reason}} - {{lead.input area}}

              However, I think having the custom field for your other unsubscribe reason and being able to filter on those who selected other and entered a reason in the input area is a much easier way to go about this.
