Hi there,

 

Silly question here, is possible to do something like a lookup in MS forms?

 

I need to insert a dropdown with several choices and depends on the choice selected I would like to see a checkbox with a hyperlink, 

 

BTW the form is in public mode.

 

Could someone help me or point me in a possible workaround?

 

Thanks in advance,

Solution

@sajarac what you could do is to use sections and branching. So add a section for each choice in the question:

Then add branching:

And select the section that each answer should go to if it's selected:

Then add whatever you need to for the question(s) in each section. For the url you would need to put that in the section description.

You are absolutely correct, that is probably the best and only solution so far for the lack of features in MS Forms.

Thanks in advance!!!!
