Mandatory checkbox without asterisk

When a domain with datatype BIT and control checkbox is not mandatory, there are 3 options:

  • empty (null)
  • selected/active (0)
  • deselected/inactive (1)

When it is mandatory there are 2 options (0 & 1) but an asterisk is shown behind the options. For the user this looks like you have to select the active option. F.e. when you have to agree to an user policy it is obligated to check the checkbox.


→ We would like to have a mandatory checkbox without the asterisk so the user does not feel obligated to check the checkbox.

Thanks for submitting this idea.

Would it be an option to only show the asterisk if the checkbox is null by default?
