Bug with checkbox fields

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

I created a copy of a sheet that contained checkbox columns (restricted to checkbox only) and deleted the existing data.  This then made the checkbox fields inoperable as it didn't accept the checkbox (even on new rows).

    I'm not able to reproduce this on my end. Just to be clear:

    1. You created a sheet that included a Checkbox column (set to checkbox only)
    2. You then populated the sheet with data (some in Checkbox and some in other columns)
    3. Then you made a copy of the sheet by right-clicking on the sheet and selecting Save as New...
    4. In the new sheet, you deleted all the existing data (including the Checkboxes)
    5. Now, any data entered into the sheet (first row, existing rows or new rows) does not allow a Checkbox value to be entered in your Checkbox column

    Or did you copy the sheet in some other way?

    Kind regards,
