Hi all,

I would like to have checkboxes instead of radio buttons for the "begin repeat", is that possible?

Thanks,

Alex

Hi Alex,

This has nothing to do with repeats. The checkboxes vs. radio buttons actually come from using select_one or select_multiple questions; select_multiples (as in the upper question in your screenshot) use checkboxes, while select_ones (as in the second question) use radio buttons.

If you want that second question to use checkboxes, you could make it a select_multiple, but that does mean people will be able to choose multiple answers. You could limit the constraint so that people can't submit when they select more than one answer, using a formula like count-selected(${multiple}) = 1 in the constraint column, but they'd still be able to select more than one on the interface, which could be confusing for people.
