Operators for Checkbox Fields

The operators for a checkbox field are:

  • equals
  • does not equal
  • contains
  • does not contain
  • is answered
  • is not answered

For checkbox fields, the "equals" operator means that only the one particular option was selected – ie, the user selected that one box and only that one box.

The "contains" operator means that the option was selected, with or without any others, and so is more commonly used for checkbox fields.
