Multiple Choice Select All option
Untitled Document

When you have a long list of multiple choice options, it would be nice to have an option "Select All". While we don't currently have a configuration option to enable this, we do have a simple workaround.

  1. Edit your question.
  2. Scroll down to the Advanced settings panel, and expand it.
  3. Scroll down until you see the heading "Script" -- if you don't see it -- contact us at support and ask for this feature to be enabled
  4. Copy and paste the JavaScript (provided under the video below) into the box to the right of "Javascript for this question"
  5. Save your question.
  6. On the Question summary page, click on "Edit subquestions"
  7. Add a final question with text like "Select All" (it doesn't matter what your text is -- the script just checks to see if the last option in your list is selected, and if so, all options will be selected).

Here's a short video review of the above:

HICS - Multiple Choice Select All Workaround from Hosted in Canada Surveys on Vimeo.

Copy and paste the following script as described in Step #4 above:

	$(document).on('ready pjax:complete',function() {

// Identify this question
var thisQuestion = $('#question{QID}');

// Initial states
if($('input[type="checkbox"]:last', thisQuestion).is(':checked')) {
$('input[type="checkbox"]', thisQuestion).not(':last').prop('checked', true).prop('disabled', true);

// Listener on the last checkbox
$('input[type="checkbox"]:last', thisQuestion).on('change', function(e) {
if($(this).is(':checked')) {
$('input[type="checkbox"]', thisQuestion).not(this).prop('checked', true).prop('disabled', true);
else {
$('input[type="checkbox"]', thisQuestion).not(this).prop('checked', false).prop('disabled', false);

// Fire Expression Manager
$('input[type="checkbox"]', thisQuestion).not(this).each(function(i) {
checkconditions(this.value,, this.type);

// Re-enable checkboxes so data gets stored
$('#moveprevbtn, #movenextbtn, #movesubmitbtn').on('click', function(){
$('input[type="checkbox"]', thisQuestion).prop('disabled', false);
