Checkboxes can be used for many things. Maybe you want to give people the option to choose multiple things from a list, then use multiple checkboxes. Maybe you want to add a disclaimer that you would like thank them on social media. Any time you need that acceptance or acknowledgement or selection, you can use a checkbox.
To add Checkboxes, you may want to add it to its own Section, as outlined here.
You may also want to add a descriptive Text about it or an Image with Impact Metrics, etc.
When you're ready to add the checkbox, select it from the Add Form Element button in (any of) the Sections.
You will be presented with the Add Form Element - Checkbox design page.
The Display Label is what will appear by the checkbox on the form for you supporters to select. This could be a single word or a full description of why they should have it checked.
Because the Display Label may be a longer description, it might be a good idea to have a separate, simpler Reporting Label.
- Click edit in the Reporting Label line and it will open with the Display Label's text for the default Reporting Label.
- You can use this or change it as desired.
By Default, the status for the checkbox is clicked, meaning, when your supporter first comes to the form, they are automatically agreeing or selecting the checkbox and would need to uncheck it if they don't want that choice.
If you would prefer to switch this to unchecked by default, use the drop-down menu to select the default status you desire.
Click Save when you are done personalizing the element and it will be added to your form.
