I have a site and want users to be able to leave reviews. I want them to have the option to select applicable keywords for each business. Let's say those keywords are: red, green, yellow. I currently have a checkbox field set up on the form with the keywords as checkbox options.    I have figured out how to display all of the checked options, but it reads something like: red, red, green, red, yellow, green. I want it to show: red - 3, green - 2, yellow - 1. Is this possible with checkboxes? Or do I need to use a different type of field?

Two ways I can think of: 1. Use frm_setup_new_field_vars (https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/frm_setup_new_fields_vars/), clear the checkbox options and insert new ones after with the information you want, making sure to use set them up as "separate values" so you can save a different value to the database than is on the screen.  2.Use jQuery to make an ajax call, collect the numerical info and visually update the checkbox text
