    Hi Bill, thank you for posting this request on the Community!ย While this logic isn't on our current roadmap, I think it's an interesting idea for our Product Team. Happy to hear what other users think about this too!

    I second Bill's post/need.ย 

    It's nice the forms are dynamic but it's only for drop downs. I need it to be in checkboxes that it can map to another page/options. There are MULTIPLE options in the forms I use and each one merits it's own new page of options to walk through.

    ย 

    For instance, a user can check each of these:

    ( ) Photography

    ( ) Web Updates

    ( ) Print Piece

    ย 

    Each page checked (they can check multiple options) means a new subset of questions they need to walk through so we have what we need. Without that built in I cannot use the forms because I do not want to make them do a dropdown for each because I'd have to list all of them in each dropdown to choose from and it creates confusion and errors. We have more than three to choose from obviously.

    ย 

    Thanks!

    Hi Sara, thanks for adding this here! Your use cases and examples really add value to the conversation here internally when discussing this feature. Our team has been working on different aspects of Dynamic Request forms and it's logic, so I have made them aware of this post. If I have any new information on this I'll be sure to post it here. Thanks for sharing!

    This is also a super important feature for us. We want to ask a similar question "what assets do you need" and allow the people filling out our request form to select 1 or many of the assets they need.

    ย 

    We not only need to be able to do the advanced logic for those checkboxes but also write that data to a custom field. I think it would work to write to a text field similar to how you can do it now for the Project title. So the custom field would be called "Assets requested" and the text would be all the values they selected separatedย by commas.ย

    Came here to request this. I have a similar need, I want to conditionally load pages based on what checkboxes have been selected. We have different assets that have different project leads and form fields for each one.

    [ ] Creative project
    [ ] Social asset
    [ ] Website change
    etc

    If they choose the first 2 then the questions for just those 2 pages should load. And it is assigned to the people who handle those first 2 items.

    Currently we have to just show the whole form and the user skips the sections that don't apply to them, but it would be much cleaner and user friendly if fieldsย for "website change" were hidden if the checkbox wasn't selected.

    This would also be very beneficial for our team, as currently our form is 20 pages long(!) due to conditional requirement limitations defined by dropdown questions. It's a very long-winded process for whoever fills out the form, and also requires a lot of effort to create the form itself.ย We would like to have page 1 with a checkbox question for different areas required, and page 2 would be constructed of relevant components relating to the topics checked on page 1.

    Our current design form has 7 categories of digital assets and multiple checkbox options under each so this conditional logic for checkboxes would be beneficial to us as well.

    However, I would also suggest that perhaps a simpler solution is to create drop down menu's that allow you to check off certain boxes. If the category titles could be expanded to all the options, we would only see the ones relevant to our request.

    This would be an immensely helpful feature. We are planning events with Wrike, and it would be great for people to start with "What kind of support do you need?" And then it directs to different pages/a different set of questions depending on what they click.

    ย 

    In addition, it would be great if different checkboxes could create a new task in the project. For example, one of our checkboxes would be "Live Streaming." If they click on "Live Streaming" I'd want it to create a tasks such as "Send link for page this event will be streamed to."

    ย 

    Thank you

    Wrike Support: Is there any plans to add this to the roadmap? It's much needed as you can see from the comments above. I'm unclear why this functionality is available for dropdown questions but not checkboxes. It seems like this would be an easy change to make?

    Have there been any developments on this feature?ย 

    Like many others, the people filling out our request forms need to be able to select multiple checkboxes, and when they do, are prompted for quantities.ย ย
