Group Check Boxes to Require One to be Checked
I want to be able to group check box fields to require one checkbox to be selected in the group.
Currently, we cannot make the single check box fields required, because the customer may not need to check all of the check boxes but they need to select at least one (and often more than one) in a group.
You'll find this is common on IRS forms, where you select the checkboxes that apply to your situation.
We would like to make sure that the recipient does select at least one check box in the group before moving on.
A radio button doesn't help for this use case because they may need to select more than one of the options.
Example, IRS Form 8850 has these kinds of check boxes where at least one must be selected but multiple could be selected.
Allow only one checkbox to be selected in a group

We have documents where we provide multiple checkboxes for a single question. For example, we may ask a user their gender. So we provide "Male", "Female", "Prefer not to say" as the options.
We would like to group these checkboxes together and say the group is required. So the user would need to select at least one of the checkboxes in the group.

We need this for both checkboxes, and text fields as we have a document where one of two text fields must be completed for the form to be valid, but our users are continually skipping the fields because it cannot be forced.
