Form that has a checkmark preselected

Hi Team,

I have a form on my app right now. How do I make a checkbox pre-checked?

Right now the checkbox is for subscribing to the newsletter. I’d like to have them “opted in” already when they submit the form, and specifically “opt-out” if they don’t want to be subscribed.

Have the value in the Google sheet for this column data to be 1. Then it will appear as pre-checked.

I’m not sure that’s possible. I tried setting up condition value of TRUE on the screen that would contain the form button. Then on the form, I created a column component that would write the true value from the previous screen to a true/false column on the form response sheet. I then set the checkbox to write to that same column. I had hoped that the incoming condition value would set the outgoing condition value, but it didn’t work.

This might be a good feature request to allow a default value for switches and checkboxes.


then again, there may be a bug with the true/false and switch/checkbox. I’m not sure if that would solve this problem though.

There’s no way to do this now, but it’s a great idea.
