Add a value to generic Webflow form Checkboxes Merged

Currently exported forms are returning 'on' when a Checkbox is clicked and blank when not clicked.

It would be great if they could pick up the checkbox name (as an option), e.g., 'Yes' (for Yes and No). Obviously Value="Yes" can be added to the checkbox code, but would be good if this could be added within Webflow (as with Radio Buttons).

This would be especially useful for long checkbox lists as the output form only then needs to show the clicked names. If just 'on' is returned then a label is necessary and also 'on' is not very informative.

    This is a major problem for me as well. I'm building 2 sites at this moment which use forms with over 40 checkboxes. Even using custom embeds, with the value's already in them, they do not work and get an override from WF to "true/false".

    Ran into this almost immediately as well. Would love it if I didn't need to manually parse checkboxes for true/false and then pivot to a different value.
