How to use checkboxes to add to a list?


I am trying to a create a listing submission form, where customers have a few categories, such as “special uses” and “natural features”. Each of these categories has 5-6 checkbox options and customers can select all that apply. I can’t seem to figure out how to add each ticked option to the respective categories (list of texts) in my database. I want them to be added only at the point when the person presses “submit listing button”. I also would like to let people to edit their listing later, by deselecting the checkboxes. At which stage I need those unticked items removed from the database.

Thank you for your help in advance!

First, all the data.
Check here to create.

Now go to the submit button workflow.
It’s a lot of work.
To enter all fields
“field add checkboxname is checked :formatted as text” and
Put the name of the checkbox in the “Yes” field.
Do not put anything in the “no” field.
This will give you a comma-separated input in a single column.

If you want to remove it from the list
Use remove instead of add.
Good luck.

I’m sending you an English translation.
I’m sorry if it looks strange.


Thank you sooooooo much!!!

Thank you for this. I used to do it the old fashioned way as in using conditions then adding the WHOLE text one at a time - very tedious lol. Finally found the perfect solution! Thank you again!
