After ticking checkboxes (loaded with conditions), visitors will be redirected to a new subset of questions based on their inputs. This exercise can trim down your scary lengthy forms which in turn will help you to reduce form abandonment rates. Unfortunately, at present, it is not possible to add a condition to Google Forms’ checkbox. It restricts this feature to just dropdown and multiple-choice options.
