Can I create a custom field with a checkbox where the answer is either Yes or No?

I created a custom field for our engineers to indicate if QA is Required?  We wanted this field to be required so I created with a checkbox with options yes & No.  I didn't realize this would allow users to choose both Yes & No.  Is there a way to make only one choice available, Yes or No?

Hi @nancy.polani ,

Yes. You need to create a radio button, this will only allow to select one value:

This is definitely the way to go.

For entertainment purposes (if you still want to know why this would be the way to go if you want a boolean field)
