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 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 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.
I will let someone from product answer that directly.
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.
