Multiple Columns for Multiple Choices!

Let’s say I’m working on a form in Wufoo to collect some very important information and notice that I’ve gotten a little carried away with the number of choices I’ve made available to my users.

Very Important Poll

While Wufoo’s default layout of stacking the choices on top of each other works great if they’re sentences or a small numbers of choices, it feels like I’m sort of wasting a lot of space here for this one question.

Well, not anymore, friends! Today, we’re releasing a Field Layout option so that you can set up your choices to be arranged in **one column**, **two columns**, **three columns** or even just **side by side** next to each other.

Multiple Columns for Radio / Checkbox Choices

We’ve made this feature pretty flexible so it works even with if you’re using the alternative text input field for Multiple Choice fields or with one of our different Label Layouts in the Form Settings. Now you can save space and look good doing it. This feature is available to all users across all plans and can be found under the Field Settings tab in the Form Builder for **Multiple Choice** and **Checkbox** Fields.

  • I wish you had left existing forms alone when you changed this, however! Fortunately I caught this today so I can fix the forms that got messed up that are already in production.

  • The single column choice is not working.

  • Hi Sue, can you send a request to support with the link to the form that’s not working for you?

  • Wufoo rocks, and this new feature is fantastic. I do have a suggestion for a new feature that would make our Wufoo account even more valuable: multiple notifications based on form fields. We use several Wufoo forms that produce notifications that are then distributed internally based on things like physical location of the form user. It would be very helpful if we could automate the triage process. Thanks, and keep up the great work!

  • Not sure if the sorting shown on the screenshot is default one and can be fixed, but I find it really uncomfortable to read things left right in rows rather than in columns. It is also harder to follow – easy to loose the last row you were reading.

    Right now, the choices are sorted in a way A- a the top, Z at the bottom

  • Great. Now add the ability for dropdown menus too. No reason you can’t have two drop down menus next to each other.

  • Multiple choice doesn’t sync with Mail Chimp. So, what’s the point?
