Making a Checkbox mandatory/required field

Hello

 

I have a powerapps form

 

I added a check box (see picture) which says 'I have read the guideliens and agree on this' 

 

Is there a way to make this mandatory so the user has to tick this field or the form does not submit/an error occurs?

 

I tried creating a column in my SharePoint list called 'I have read the guidelines and agree on this'  using the Yes/No column but only a radio button came and there were some formatting issues where I couldnt move the datafield around.

Try changing the DisplayMode of your submit button/icon.  This way it will be disabled until they check the checkbox.

 

So, for example, your CheckBox is checkBox1

On the button you use to submit, change the DisplayMode to the following:

   If(checkBox1.Value, Edit, Disabled)

 

This way they cannot submit unless they check the box as the button would not be enabled.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks. Worked perfectly!

What about for a custom SharePoint list form where Save/Cancel buttons aren't visible in PowerApps?
