  2. The report shows the field name and values configured for the section; however, it does not show the checkbox selection made by the end-user.

There are no evalues defined for the custom checkbox fields in that section:



  • Check the template XML to make sure there are evalues defined for each custom checkbox.

Note: Download the template xml via Admin Center > Form Template Settings > Download Form Template.

  • The example below shows the evalue defined as "Y":


  • This is the value stored when the user checks the box.
  • If no value is specified, then no value is stored in the database.
  • With the evalue defined, the custom checkbox field value selected in the Adhoc report will be visible:


Note: This value cannot be added to live forms. If forms are launched with no value defined, make the correction, delete current forms, and relaunch.
