Can a checkbox synchronise between two tables?

    Can I create a checkbox in two related tables that updates whether it is checked in either of the two tables (synchronised). e.g., I have a job table and and report table, the job table is the parent table.
    On the report table is a checkbox called "accepted", if "accepted is checked on the report table (child) I would like it to also check the "accepted" checkbox in the job table and visa versa if it is checked from the job table.

    While this can be done with Actions, I suggest using formuals will be an easier setup.

    You can have a summary field to count the # of reports which are completed.  The have a field on the Project called [Checkbox Status] to show as a calculated checkbox 

    [# of reports completed] > 0 or [Project checkmark]=true

    Then on the child record, similarly you can lookup [Checkbox Status] to the Reports table and have a formula field called [Report Status] like

    [checkbox status lookup] = true or [Reports checkbox] = true
