Formatting a checklist in a questionnaire


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Format a checklist in a survey to define the choices that users can select to answer a question. With a checklist, users can select multiple answers to a question. For example, in a questionnaire for job applicants, you can ask users to select the languages that they speak.

Add a question of a checklist type to your survey. For more information, see Adding a question to a question page.

Only standard Pega Platform applications support questions with a checklist. Applications based on Cosmos React do not display questions with checklists.
