    "Field style 'checkbox' does not work with field conditions"

    For the above, are you asking if the result from a checkbox can be used to trigger a field conditional for another field?  If so, you can as the checkbox returns either TRUE or FALSE, so enter one of those as Condition Value.  Enter Condition as either EQUAL or NOT EQUAL as needed.

    The suggestion for Contains/Does Not Contain would be helpful for Canvas to implement.

    Checkbox style field also has no way to set a default value

    The workaround we've used for default value and/or requiring input of a checkbox is to use a Multiple Choice/Radio Button field.  Make this required, then you can set the default value or place the desired default value as the first entry in the Choices list. 

    To require an entry but ensure that the user has responded, make the Multiple Choice/Radio Button field required and enter a blank line as the first Choice in the list, then list other options.  This will force the user to make a choice as the BLANK isn't considered a response in the mobile app.  In our case our list consists of:

    [BLANK]

    Yes

    No

    N/A

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to circle back on this topic and share that we released an update this weekend to allow Checkbox fields to be required as checked! Here's a little preview:

    This addresses part of the functionality mentioned in the comments on this post, though the functionality with Conditions currently remains the same. Regardless, we hope this makes your experience getting customers to agree to things like Terms and Conditions, waivers, etc. easier than before. Thanks for your feedback, as always.

    All the best,
    Siobhan

    Hey everyone! We've released the first part of "contains" for both Android and iOS. The new functionality includes the ability to do "contains," "starts with" and "ends with." The ability to do the opposite ("does not contain," etc.) will be coming soon as well. Release notes & details for this will be out tomorrow.
