Way to automate check boxes in a form?


I have a form with multiple check boxes for people to check off based on which option they want (they can select multiple or just one). I want to be able to have an ALL OF THE ABOVE option but want to find a way so that when a user of the form checks ALL OF THE ABOVE, it will automatically generate all the other check boxes to be checked off.

Is there a way to do this, maybe through an automation?

Willing for any help, thank you!

    Here's how you would set up the automation

  • Thank you! Would I have to set up this automation for every option that can be checked off in the form?

    Hi @SYDPEN

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You'd only need to use the Add another column for all columns for the All above option.

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
