I have a SharePoint online document library with a Choice column. I have selected Checkboxes so users can have multiple selections options. My issue is that when I want to use Group by an option to create a new view, I can't see this column in the list of selections.

Would you mind letting me know first if there is another way to achieve my goal and second if I am doing something wrong?

This is by design in SharePoint. Choice column with multiple selections does not support grouping in views.

Currently it is by default that we cannot group by items based on a choice column.
