Saving Checkboxes

Dear community, 

I have a gallery in relation to student data. 


And when I click on each record I get directed to the detailform page which contains their info/record.


I want to insert three check boxes for our staff to tick off.


Which are 

1. Have we assigned them a new email

2. Have we sent out the joining instructions to that particular starter.


I have inserted these check boxes. 

But When I tick these as being done for student x. 

and go back the checkboxes reset to unchecked. so the selections are not geting saved.


So my question is how do I save the results of my checkboxes and how do I make it different for each record?.



Many Thanks

Re: Saving Checkboxes

It sounds like your detailed form a display or edit form? Where the check boxes added to the data source where the data gets saved?

Re: Saving Checkboxes

Hi @rajibabiker ,

Could you tell me how do you want to use the result of checkboxes?

1)If you want to set the result as variables, you could try this:

insert 4 check boxes, set check box1's and check box3's Text: :"true",set check box2's and check box4's Text: :"false"

(check box1 and check box2 for question1, check box3 and check box4 for question2)

Set checkbox1's OnCheck: Set(var1,true)

      checkbox2's OnCheck: Set(var1,false)

      checkbox3's OnCheck: Set(var1,true)

      checkbox4's OnCheck: Set(var1,false)

Then, the variabe var1 is the result of question1 and variabe var2 is the result of question2.

2)If you want to update field, you could try thisSmiley Sadassume that they are choice cholumn)
