Auto Check for Checkbox

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

Need to ensure that a checkbox is auto checked once a task name is inserted into a new row, but can be unchecked if other boxes are checked.

I have reports that use certain check boxes to be checked and if somebody forgets to check the initial "not started" column checkbox, it will not show up in an employees report. I want the "not started" check box to be automatically checked if there is a task name entered in the same row. Then, if "in progress" is checked, ideally it auto unchecks, the "not started" does not recheck itself.  I guess that feature would be nice for "complete" too, by checking it, it will uncheck "in progress." I want checkboxes and not drop down too.
