How to use

Add a new block to your form and then select the question type Checkbox (single). You can now customize this block to your needs with the following features:


  • Text
    Use the Text feature for the name/title of this block.
  • Description
    Enable the Description feature to add a description to this block.
  • Placeholder
    By default the name of the block will be used as the label for the checkbox. Enable the Placeholder feature to show the name of the block on top of the checkbox and show the placeholder as the label for the checkbox.
  • Help text
    Enable the Help text feature to add a help text to this block.


  • Required
    By default this block is not required to fill out by your respondents. Enable the Required feature to make this block required to fill out.
  • Visibility
    By default this block is visible in your form. Enable the Visibility feature to hide it for your respondents.
  • Labels
    By default the checkbox will be marked as Checked or Not checked in your dataset (your results). Enable the Labels feature to overwrite these labels in your dataset with your own values.
  • Score
    You can attach scores to the checkbox states to perform instant calculations. Enable the Score feature to enter the desired score values.
  • Alias
    By default the name/title of this block will be used in your dataset. Enable the Alias feature to use a different name in your dataset.
  • Exportability
    By default the collected data of this block will be stored to the dataset of each result. Enable the Exportability feature to take control over the storage. You can then include/exclude the data from your dataset. Please note that if you exclude data from the dataset you can never see and/or use the given answers from your respondents to this block, because the data is simply not stored at all.
