Yes/No Check bo

Hi,
I have yes/no fields I’d like them to appear as box checked/unchecked everywhere, in list, details and edit. current they appear as Y/N

I made some progress using actions still the boxes for the same field in this example isActive do not align in list view and then in details view I still have Y plus box checked

any tip to have all Yes/No simply appear as checkboxes everywhere otherwise if actions needs to be created for all it will just be really tricky to maintain

thanks for your help

Hi @jeanseb
You could make an enum and paste in emoji like this.

@Lynn thanks for the tip, this works well for list display view ;-p I created a virtual column

using formula

as otherwise I can not cast the emoji to my true/false values in the existing column ie I need base type to still be Yes/No

also enabling quick edit if I pass in edit mode I can get check boxes, it is a pity the view list still shows Y/N :

somthing weird is yes/no columns appear with no header name so if I have 2 yes/no columns isActive and isDefault I get this :

I will work it around with virtual columns and emoji

now in detail view I switched to enable quick edit which makes the Yes/No fields “sliders” instead of Y/N so this is an acceptable workaround even if user experience consistency will be lower.

thanks
