I’m trying to use a “check box” field as one of my filtering criteria for a data shuttle offload that I’m setting up, but have not had luck getting this to work. I’d like to the data shuttle offload to exclude rows that have this field checked. I’ve set my filter to allow offloading of this field when the field “is blank”, but this does not appear to be working. Is data shuttle capable of filtering using a check box field?

    Hey @Andrew B

    Try this as the filter

    Checkbox column equals zero. A checked box would have a value of 1.

    This solution actually did not work for me. It works within an IF statement within a sheet, but it does not work to filter offload workflows or upload workflows from csv or xlsx in Data Shuttle. After A LOT of trial and error, what actually worked for me was Field equals true (no quotation marks, lowercase). This works for both offload and upload.

    Side note re blank fields for check boxes: Checkbox fields will show up as blank if they have never been checked, it seems. But once they have been checked and unchecked, they can be isolated by field does not equal true. They don't seem to be caught by field equals false either.

    I've had a similar issue, 1 and 0 did not work. Equal false did not work either, the only filter that worked was not equal to true. Thanks for the solution @Leah Rankin.
