Feature request: ability to set radio buttons and checkboxes via lookup

posted on February 25, 2016

We have a lot of forms where we perform lookups and need to automatically select radio button options or checkboxes based on the lookup result. The way we currently handle it is via a fair amount of JavaScript that serializes/unserializes the user's choices and stores the values in a hidden field, which each every radio button and checkbox field on the form has to have if it is lookup-able.

This is such a common function that we have it as part of our boilerplate.js, which we include on all projects. So I wanted to submit it as a feature request. It would be great if the Lookup Rules section had logic like "Check <checkbox option 1> if <database value> equals X".

We have heard this request quite often and have it as a high priority on our list. Thanks for the requests.

Thanks Jared, but I'd like to express disappointment that it didn't make it into 10.3.1. It has been two years and the post has 15 upvotes, not to mention all the related posts... is there a "trick" to making sure feature requests make it into the product in a shorter timeframe?

As with all feature requests, there are a lot of factors that determine which features are worked on and when. Seeing active users post about them on Answers and getting traction from other users is definitely noticed and used in our prioritization evaluation. In fact, a big reason we implemented the ability to disable lookups and retain lookups through process migration in Forms 10.3.1 was largely a result of it being requested and up-voted in Answers. This feature request to use lookups to select radio button, checkbox or list options is something we understand is a very high priority to our users and is something we are currently actively working on.

That doesn't answer my question, but thanks anyway.
