I am a FM newbie.
Is there a way to create a set of ckeckboxes inside a check box. Thanks
Thank you for your response.
I want to be able to choose from a list (street, home, city, town..etc ), then after chosing any of the options I would like to choose from another list linked to what i chose (Where i grew up, next to us, i would like to visit...etc). Hoping to eventually create a letter by merging fields from the input. Thanks
What would that look like? (I'm having trouble picturing what that would look like and how it would function.)
Can you given an example of what you want to do with it?
So the choice from one list controls what values are listed in the second?
If so, this is called a conditional value list. While more typically done with drop down lists and pop up menus, it can also be done with check box groups and radio buttons. There are also ways to set up what looks like a check box group but is really a list of values in a portal.
Here are some links on conditional value lists to get you started:
