Let's say you created a form that includes a checkbox question (in this example "Choose your sport").
- A Checkbox field in Tally allows for multiple answers and needs to be mapped to a Multiple select in Airtable (1)
- Or each Checkbox option (Running, Swimming, Hiking) in Tally can be mapped to a Checkbox in Airtable, which will basically indicate if that particular option was selected or not (2)
- This is how the result will look like in Airtable.
You can only map fields which are editable in Airtable. If you’re on a premium Airtable plan, field permissions might be limited. You can view the field permissions by clicking the column name → Edit field permissions.
