Checkbox Formula For Columns
Smartsheet Community:
I would like to have my Formula to Checkbox one the Criteria is Meet. In Other words all the Other Columns Must Be Checked in order for the Done Column to Check the Checkbox
I believe I am close but see my current formula below:
=IF(COUNTIF([Original File]17:[Fax to Bank]17, 1, 0))
Thanks

@Paul Newcome & @Andrée Starå I think I figured it out.
=IF(COUNTIF([Speed Test]19:[Cable Zip Tied]19, 0) = 0, 1)
Now all Boxes have to be Checked in order for the Done Column Formula to Activate and Check the Box

Hi @Ray B
I hope you're well and safe!
Try something like this.
=IF(COUNTIF([Original File]@row:[Fax to Bank]@row, "") = 0, 1, 0)
Did that work/help?
I hope that helps!
Be safe and have a fantastic week!
Best,

No, it Checks the Box when Only 1 Column is Checked. I only want it to check the box only if all the All the Columns are Checked and if Only Box is Checked then the Formula Column Remains Unchecked.

Apologies.
Here's the correct one. (you only need to change the number of checkboxes that should be checked)
=IF(COUNTIF([Original File]@row:[Fax to Bank]@row, 1) = 3, 1, 0)
Did that work?

That did not work either. Take a look at this formula I found in a Smartsheet Template:
=IF(COUNTIF([Original File]18:[Fax to Bank]18, 0) > 0.5, "Red", "Green")
Now it will only turn Green if all the Boxes are Checked. If 4 out 5 are Checked it will be Red. The Formula will only turn Green if 5 out 5 are checked or however many Columns have the Checkbox Property.
Your thoughts on Converting the Template Formula to Checkbox instead of a Result of Red or Green?
I Shared the Sheet (New Hire Checklist) with you. Done Column Contains the Formula.

@Andrée Starå Were you able to Review the Template Formula I Provided?

@Paul Newcome Can you take a look at this formula Below and see what I am doing wrong?
