To add a multi-choice field with fixed options displayed as checkboxes, choose Checkbox from the Field type dropdown. You can add new checkbox options by entering the value in the Add Value field and clicking the Plus icon; to remove existing options, click the Remove icon next to the value field.

After saving the field, a set of checkboxes with fix values is created for standardized data entry. Note: checkbox fields can accept more than one value at a time.

The following field options are supported for checkbox fields:

  • Required field – makes data entry required prior to storing a sample
  • Note field – field information for end user displayed in a tooltip balloon
  • Default value – field is filled with the default value if none is provided on sample creation
