Configuring Fields → Field Types and Settings → Binary/Trinary Fields
Binary/Trinary fields can store either two values or three values that are defined in SBM Composer. Binary/Trinary fields are also used to determine subtask status. The values provided as first, second, and third values correspond to actions based on subtask status.
The following Binary/Trinary field attributes can be modified for default fields in projects and transition fields. Attributes set for fields in the Default Fields list apply to all transitions; attributes set for fields for a transition apply only to that transition.
For projects, select this check box to override field properties inherited from the parent project or workflow.
Indicates that users are required to provide a value for this field. If a value was previously set for the field, the field label appears in green, italic text on forms.

Indicates that users can view but not edit the field.
Indicates the pre-selected value for this field. For fields set to be displayed as a check box, "Checked" and "Not Checked" are available as default values.
