Understand Decision Box Field | Zoho Creator Help

Understand decision box field

The decision box field enables your users to enter a true/false or yes/no response. The input area of the decision box field features a single checkbox:
  • If your users check this checkbox, this field's value is set as  true
  • If your users let this checkbox be unchecked, this field's value is set as  false


With respect to the user-experience of the decision box field on a form, you can:
  • Make it  Mandatory :
    • Making the decision box field  mandatory  will force your users to check its checkbox. Until your users check the checkbox, they won't be able to their data through your form.
    • If your users do not check the decision box, form submission will fail and a message will be displayed below that decision box field.
  • Set an  initial value  for this field, which yours users will see when they access your form.
  • Customize the  field name and field link name  of this field.
  • Enable  showing this field only to the app’s admin  (and hide it from other users).
  • Enable displaying a  tooltip message  when your users hover their mouse on this field.
When your users access the decision box field in 
, you can:
  • Set the  Display Value : The decision box field stores one of two values -  true  or  false . Instead of showing these values, you can enable your users to view a custom text (that doesn't exceed 50 characters). For example, you could display  true  as "Yes" and  false  as "No".
