    Hello, is it possible to "mark" checkbox buttons using calculation or pre-loading them by default? I would need to use the calculation values of each cell by default when the form is loaded.

    Is there any other way of using the calculation values for ALL the fields? -Radio buttons only allow one value per row, and text box or dropdown would only work if a number is filled (and I need to use only calculation values pre-configured.

    Also tried to copy the value of a marked check-box to a cell in the table and didn't work.

    Thank you very much,

    If you wish to select the checkbox by default, please click on the gear icon and select the field in Selected by Default under the Advanced tab.

    Also, you can assign the calculation values for each option in the field. You just need to enable the Use Calculation Values option and assign the desired values to each option.

    Thank you Andrew, I wrote the comment under the input table page because I wanted to do exactly this in an input table field.

    It is possible to use conditions to populate the value in your checkbox.

    Thank you, but still that's a checkbox and I want to do exactly that in an INPUT TABLE field.
