I have a PowerApps form where I've added some checkboxes, and I want to reference a dropdown field's selection for those checkbox default values. The issue I'm having is that the choice field is multi-select. If it weren't I could just go to each checkbox and set its default property to If(DatacardValue37.Selected.Value = "Advisory", true, false). But this only works if ONLY that choice is selected.

My question is, is there a way to write this default value that will say If(DatacardValue37.Selected.Value Contains "Advisory", true, false? Not sure how to apprach this.

Thanks for the help.

Try using formula in below format:

If("Advisory" in DatacardValue37.Selected.Value, true, false)
