Yes/No Boolean with no default value (Dataverse)

I am building an app to replace some paper forms, many of the questions are yes/no.

A "Yes/No" works great as it is actually a true/false column which I can update without reference choices list.

The only limitation is that, the default can not be blank for this column type, it must be yes or no.

 

My question is:

Can I have a yes/no boolean column with no default value; which means the default value is blank.

Hi @Salem,

 

Unfortunately this is not possible with a yes/no. It has to have a value. It's often recommended to use Choice (option set) over yes/no because of this inflexibility/limitation.
