Hello everyone!

This being my first posted question, please let me know if I haven’t provided enough information / context, or if this question is being asked in the wrong Category. This will help improve the way I phrase the question as well as where to address it.

I am looking into Zapier, using it to automatically create a record, and when creating this record automatically filling in some of the data. Most of it is pretty straightforward, but I can’t figure out yet how to instruct Zapier to automatically check some of the checkboxes in the row / record.

If anyone either knows the answer, or knows where I can find the answer, that would be great!
If this question has been asked previously, I checked for an answer but I could have missed it, I will remove this question so that things will stay organised.

Thanks in advance,
Gunnar

If you have a checkbox field, you can send the word “checked” to that field in order to check the checkbox.

BTW, one important thing to note is that I highly recommend switching away from Zapier and using Make's automations & integrations instead.

The reason for this recommendation is because Make is INFINITELY more powerful & customizable than Zapier, yet it is SIGNIFICANTLY CHEAPER than Zapier.

I wrote an entire post here comparing Make vs. Zapier.

If you’ve never used Make before, I’ve assembled a bunch of Make training resources in this thread. For example, here is how you would instantly trigger a Make automation from Airtable.

I also give live demonstrations of how to use Make in many of my Airtable podcast appearances here.

For example, in this video, I show how to work with Airtable arrays in Make.

Hope this helps! If you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with anything Airtable-related, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consultant — ScottWorld
