Checkboxes offer a clear way to mark the status of a record, such as whether it's completed or selected. They provide a distinct binary state to data, simplifying the tracking and management of these states considerably.

Creating a Checkbox Field

When you need to add a clear yes/no, completed/not completed, or any other binary state to your table, a checkbox field is the ideal choice. To add such a field, follow these steps:

  • In your table view, click the "Add Field" button.

  • Name your new field and select "Checkbox" as the field type from the dropdown menu.

Use Cases

Task Tracking

Checkbox fields are perfectly suited for task management and project tracking, allowing you to easily mark tasks as completed.

Data Verification

During data auditing or proofreading, checkbox fields can help you indicate which data has been reviewed or verified.


If you're creating a survey or form and want users to select certain options, then checkbox fields are a great choice.

Interaction with Other Fields

Counting with Formula Fields

You can use formula fields to count the number of checked records, which is particularly useful for tracking completed tasks or verified data.

Combining with Date Fields

When used alongside date fields, checkbox fields can indicate the completion status of a task or event, while the date field shows the specific date of completion.


Checkbox fields are invaluable when you need clear and straightforward status tracking. Their intuitive design and ease of use make them a favorite in many projects and tasks. Using checkbox fields correctly can make your data management more efficient and organized.
