How would I go about creating this checklist on a layout? (See image).
Each text field would contain the name of a different person.
There really isn't enough context, literally or figuratively, about what this is, to give a definitive answer.
I'm assuming performers perform at an event, and a performer could be invited/give a performance for more than one event. In that case, you'd need an Event table. And a Performer table. And a join table called EventPerformance. On an Event layout, you would add a portal based on EventPeformance. That would allow for any number of performer invitations/confirmations.
Need more explanation for us to get clear suggestion!
Is this a List View or a portal? This answer will work for either.
You would have the Name field (TEXT) and two NUMBER fields "Asked" & "Confirmed". Then on your layout you place these fields and assign them to be Control style "Checkbox".
You'd asked the question on "Checkbox video" and I replied there. See if this reminds you how to do this:
If you have additional questions, post back (to this thread) your progress (with screenshots) and ask specific questions about any issues you may be having.
Sorry, perhaps this screenshot will be more helpful.
I'm a musician, I book myself and my bands for a variety of events.
I've created a "Gig Form" (actually in the process of creating it) with all the info I need for each performance that I/we do.
I was able to create check boxes on a "Gig List" (see second image) successfully (thanks for your help!). So I understand that process.
Now I need to create a way to list each performer (personnel) involved in any particular performance, and check off when I ask them for availability and confirmation. I work with a number of different performers in different collaborations, so I'll need the ability to add new performers from time to time to any given "gig".
In the screenshot below you can see how I want the personnel list to look on a form on a layout (circled in red). Now I need to find out how to add personnel. Please let me know if you need more info, thanks for your patience (besides being new to this, I tend to operate from an artist's "right brain" perspective!).
