Checkbox Matrix

The Checkbox Matrix creates a table format of checkboxes for multiple questions, from which the user can select multiple answers per row. 

This type of question is common as a form of feedback/review, like the example image below.

Before adding a Checkbox matrix, or any other question, the Forms for Confluence container must be added to the page.

Visit the Creating Forms page for detailed instructions on adding a form to a page.
