Multiple checkboxes in one cell  Formula for True
I have a column asking three questions with the option to check one or all. Is there a formula to test if all checkboxes in one cell have been checked? I would like to apply the fomula to a symobol column where if all boxes are checked it will return a "true" value.

Hi @Shawn Church,
You can do this with the COUNTM function.
=IF(COUNTM[Question]@row =3, 1 ,0)
Substitute the 1 and 0 with your symbol preferences.

Thanks! That worked.

Follow up question....
The formula seems to work, however, it is only returning text values and not the symbol. Here is my formula:
=IF(COUNTM(Question@row) = 3, "yes", IF(COUNTM(Question@row) = 0, "no", IF(COUNTM(Question@row) > 0, "hold")))
What am I doing wrong?

It's very simple to fix: you need to capitalise the words (e.g. "yes" to "Yes") and the symbols should show up correctly.
