I have a condition that Inputs Boolean and outputs Boolean, and i wish to make it appear (format it) as a checkbox and not as a string “true” or “false”

IF(Field1 = TRUE(), TRUE(), FALSE())

Thanks

With the addition of the Interfaces product this is even more paramount than before.

These are no longer just “visual preferences”, they affect all the Airtable UI that depends on things being semantically a boolean (true/false) value.

This includes the use of Filters on interfaces, header groupings, API consumption and I’m sure other aspects that are not top of mind.

This is a very basic functionality that affects a lot of downstream consequences.
Please prioritize getting this in place!

Adding my voice to this one as well. Key issue on top of visuals in the base itself, is API calls for that field aren't returning true boolean like a checkbox does, but returns 1/0. Output needs to be the same as the checkbox output.

'Warning: The following Airtable records will be ignored because they have filed validation: Unexpected value [1] for [fields.1.Stop Work (Recon)]; expected value of type [[boolean]].'

This would be a very useful option please! I won't explain my reasons - they are all described by other users above
