Request: Report summaries should count checked = 1 and unchecked = 0 for Checkbox columns

Love the reporting column summaries feature for most column types. However, the Count summary option isn't very useful for Checkbox fields. I want to see how many "violations" there are which we denote with flags being checked or unchecked. I'd expect the following scenario to return "3" and not "5".

Or am I missing a way to configure this to make it return the number of checked flags?

    Hey @CMathews

    Add a filter to your report where Flag column 'is checked'. This will only count the flagged flags. If you want a count of both, don't add the filter but add a grouping on the Flag column. You will then see the total of unchecked and checked.

    or, with the Group on the Flag column, sorted Descending Order

    Will this work for you?
