Check box fields in Flow

What is the best method to create questions for checkbox Data type fields in flow? The "Yes/No" option isn't available in the cloud designer. Thanks


Yes and No would be "Choices" you create in the cloud designer. So a Question with a Yes/No in the old desktop would be a Screen with a Choice Field with 2 choices - yes and No.


Hope this helps..



A Choice combination of 2 Yes/No radio buttons doesn't really work well for long lists.  Asking a person to select which of 60 different interests/hobbies they prefer is much more ergonomically and efficiently presented as a checkbox choice collection.  I'd really like to see a Checkbox Choice added to WVF. 


Usa a radio button with values of True and False (or Yes and No with stored values of Global True and Global False) To do this make the choice field of Boolean.


Another work around is have a choice with any lable you want so that it only has one radio button (to look more like a checkbox) then have a descion that if checked update record with global True else update with Global False. (the only problem with this is that once checked you can not uncheck so two choices might work better)


Have you figured out how to extract the radio button value if you are using a subflow? I.E when pulling the value back to your masterflow have the value checked if marked as checked.

Create an output variable and set the result of the screen to this var and in your flow get this var.
