If "approved" is chosen manually in the status column, I'd like the "Approved" check box to be automatically checked. If "Contract Signed" is manually chosen, I'd like the "Contract Signed" box to be automatically checked, and so on and so forth.
I know I can use the "IF" function, but I'm not familiar with code and not 100% sure how to make it work for this use case.
Additionally, would it be possible to make this happen in reverse as well? So if the "Approved" check box is clicked, "Approved" will show up in the "Status" column?
You'll need to use an automation for this. The trigger would be "When record is updated", focused on the "Status" field, and you'd use conditional actions to check whether the "Approved" option was added to that select field. You'd then add an "Update record" action to check the "Approved" field
You could then add more conditional actions for each checkbox
