To add a checkboxes element to a Nucleus Form, begin by dragging and dropping the checkboxes form element onto your Nucleus Form block.

Upon adding a checkboxes element to your form, click on the heading of your new element, and you'll be presented with a number of different settings/options to further customize your new form element.


The label is the heading given to your form element. This label is important for letting your user know what type of information belong in this particular form field.


The Choices tab allows you to create each of the individual checkbox items that a user will be able to select. 

NOTE: When using the Checkboxes form element, users will be able to select multiple responses. If you wish to use a form element that only allows users to select a single element, make sure to use a Multiple Choice form field.

By default, your Checkboxes form element will begin with two different choices for you to configure. To add more checkbox options, simply click on the 'Add new choice' link. 

To delete a choice, click on the 'X' button corresponding to the checkbox choice you wish to remove.

Make Required

By toggling the 'Make Required' switch to the 'On' position, you'll ensure that your form cannot be submitted without this form element being filled out.

If a user tries to submit your form without filling out the required form element, they'll be met with an error message letting them know they missed a required field.
