How to create clickable checkboxes?

I have a table with checkboxes - I am able to create a "check" overlay to simulate the ability to use checkboxes, however, only one check can be used at a time. I can click on a checkbox but then have to uncheck it in order to check another checkbox. I'm not sure how to be able to "check" off more than one box on an artboard. Does anyone know?

Hi Jessica,

Thank you very much for reaching out here in Community, as well as opening a ticket with our Support team. As mentioned by your Support agent, it isn't currently possible to have multiple overlays active at once, but it is a feature that our Product team is tracking interest for. It appears as if your vote has been counted for this feature, and you will be sent any updates as we have them. If anybody else would like to add their vote for this feature, please contact Support here and voice your opinion!

For anybody else that may be trying to achieve this behavior, a possible workaround is to link the checkboxes to different screens rather than an overlay. For example, artboard 1 will have no boxes checked with a hotspot to artboard 2 with the first box checked. Artboard 2 could then have a hotspot for the second check box to lead to artboard 3 which would have both the first and second boxes checked and so on.

We apologize for the inconvenience in the meantime, and hope this helps!

Have a wonderful day,
