Checkbox - Formula Assistance

    Hello,

    I am trying to create a checkbox formula field for "if a timestamp field is blank, checkbox = true" or vise-versa.

    Can someone assist me with this formula?

    Thank you,
    Jenna

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your response. That actually did not return any checkmarks.

    Thanks,
    Jenna

    Can you tell me what field type the field is?  I assumed by a TimeStamp field you meant a date/time field, and that formula should work for that field type.

    Hi Mark,

    I was able to figure it out with this formula: 
    If (IsNull([Timestamp]), false, true)

    Thank you!

    OK, but your question was this :)

    "if a timestamp field is blank, checkbox = true"

    Your formula will do the opposite.  Mine should have answered your question,  but glad that you have it working now the way you want it.
