Multiple choice questions in web form

Is it possible to create a question item where the user can select more than one answer - using the standard Shift or Ctrl keys - or some other way?


I'm setting up my first Smartsheet ...  Thanks.



  • This is something I would love to see Smartsheet add in, however as far as I can tell there really isn't a way to do this other than to create a column for each choice you want the user to be able to select (& then set-up each column as a check-box).


    The issue with muliple-choice options based on a drop-down list for example, is that Smartsheet would have to architect a way for multiple data points to populate the sheet (a cell can only really have one data point/answer - not many).


    Hope this helps and good luck!

    Hi all,

    Good news! It's coming!

    Hi everyone, 

    I'm pleased to announce that the Multi Select Dropdown project is in development.

    The functionality Robert Meisch mentioned above (dynamically populate a drop down list from a selected range in a sheet?) is in early stages of research and we're hoping to have that out this year.

    Thank you for the passion, and thanks for the patience.


    Hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend!
