You'll need some code to do that.

A simple check-box has a label and a boolean flag. It's either set, or it is not. If it is set, it displays the label. If it is not set, it displays nothing.

Your code will need to display a second label when the data is "nothing". You might be able to do this with javascript (find the "empty" in the html and draw something over the top), but you might have to resort to writing your own .vm that will display something (either by editing the core code that handles display of check box fields, or writing your own field type)

Hi Nic,

Thanks for replay. It is possible to achieve this in "On Demand Jira".
