Formula for to change cell value if all checkboxes ticked


Request assistance with a formula for the below scenario.

Eleven of the columns in the Smartsheet have a Checkbox. I am looking for a formula that if all the Checkboxes are ticked then the value on the adjacent cell changes from 'Initiated' to 'Completed'.

I'm new to Smartsheet and Formulas 😃. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

    Hi @Coolvar

    Try something like this.

    =IF(COUNTIF([Checkbox 1]@row:[Checkbox 11]@row; 1) = 11; "Completed"; "Initiated")

    The same version but with the below changes for convenience.

    =IF(COUNTIF([Checkbox 1]@row:[Checkbox 11]@row, 1) = 11, "Completed", "Initiated")

    Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
