I want the Check-boxes back!

Check-boxes were replaced by Yes/No fields. A check-box is edited in 1 click, a Yes/No takes 3 clicks.  Can we have the option what we want to use - check-box or yes/no.

I don't think the check-boxes are coming back, but perhaps we can add one-click functionality to the toggles. I'll check with the product team.

I sincerely hope you are wrong about the ✓!!!

Too many people are strongly attached to their Checklists and the ability to track tasks with check-boxes.  Even if we get the one click functionality "YES" and "NO" cannot match the visual simplicity of "✓" or " ". In this regard, V6 takes a huge step back in its basic, project management functionality!

If the ✓ poses UI or functionality challenges because of the check-boxes in the first column of the work items list, the Dev team needs to come up with creative solution to bring the most basic and popular option to visualize a binary field.

Our projects average 400 tasks that are simply managed with "✓". YES/NO will make this difficult and almost impossible because the BLANK will be missing.

Okay, I have some good news.  There will be a new formatting option that will let you flip the switches online with one click (like checkboxes).  Instead of displaying yes/no, the toggle will be displayed.

Thanks for the update. If the toggle looks like the one currently available in V6 - white check-box on dark blue background and grey 0 on white background - this should be distinctive enough.
