Set Checkbox to Checked based on another Field


#1

I would like to set a checkbox to checked based on if another field has a number in it. Here is the Function I have in a Field called CheckChain.

IF({Chain Amount} = BLANK(), Chain = 0,Chain = 1)

The field Chain is a checkbox, and the field Chain Amount is how many times tire chains are applied. I am using this as a check to be sure the Chain checkbox is checked, if someone forgot to check it and entered an amount.

You can’t do it if the field Chain was a checkbox. You could have the formula like this though:

IF({Chain Amount}, ‘:white_check_mark:’, ‘:no_entry:️’ )

The rendering of the text above is buggy for me. Here’s the image:

How exactly is this entered into the formula field, might I ask?

To enter in the emoji characters:
If you have a Mac, you can bring up an emoji picker by typing Ctrl-Cmd-Space. Alternatively, you can copy and paste emoji from websites such as Emojipedia. (Copy-paste won’t work here as the forum engine replaces emoji with images.)

Woah. I’m aware of the insert character dialogue as I use it often for logical symbols and such, but I didn’t realize it accepted those, especially in a formula field.
That’s nifty.
