How do I Automate a Checkmark IF another cell is a certain value

Hi All,

I am trying to automate a checkmark in a checkbox column if the function returns ANY of the dropdown values from another column.

For instance, If the Project Team (Column) assigned is either "DPMO", "Engineering", or "Clinical Effectiveness", I want the cell to have a checkmark ("1). If it has anything else, I would like the cell to be left blank ("0").

Is this possible?

I have tried the following with no luck...

=IF(OR([Project Team]4 = "DPMO", [Project Team]4 = "Engineering", [Project Team]4 = "Clinical Effectivess", "1"))

    1) You have a bracket in the wrong spot

    =IF(OR([Project Team]4 = "DPMO", [Project Team]4 = "Engineering", [Project Team]4 = "Clinical Effectiveness"), 1)

    should work

    . Also, don't put the 1 in quotes as it is then text the checkmark type needs a 1 or a 0 (Numeric)
