Excel template - checkboxes

edited 01/12/24 in Smartsheet Basics

I'm new here, I've exported a sheet already within our account which I've been asked to edit to include all weeks days for 2024., did that but how do you get the checkboxes to appear. The attached is screen grab of excel exported and where it has TRUE in Smartsheet app it has a check box which I've also attached screenshot of it can be ticked or left blank.

Or if manually entering onto sheets can multiple columns be added?

Currently INSERT COLUMN - New Column is named date and Column Type is Check box

Hope this makes sense and if someone can guide me on how to do this please

    Hello @Becb

    Right click your column name and select edit column properties. Choose the dropdown for Column Type and select Checkbox. Make sure you toggle ON the Restrict to checkbox use only. Select Ok and you will have your checkboxes.
