Should “localize” be extended to cover the Boolean Yes/No data type?

Currently this field renders as Y or N in view and edit modes.

Data is stored in Google Sheets as TRUE or FALSE.

Or should documentation that discuss data types and localization instead direct app developers to define an ENum field with the Yes/No values they want instead of using the Yes/No data type?

Good idea, but I always make my own yes no buttons with an Enum and data validation in my sheet so I get a yes or no stored to my sheet just like you want.

@Nicholas_Christoffer Hmm, this one might be trickier to localize, since it is “deeper” in the system than just the presentation of your app. @praveen fyi

In the mean time, you can make an enum column instead. That will allow you to control what values appear in the buttons.
