There is a little bit of gray area when it comes to selecting the best filed type option for yes/no questions and answers in your database of records.  Hopefully we can help you clear this up.  

AE Tip: If in doubt, use the field type "Set of Options" and set your options to a single-select Yes or No. 

Q1: Does this field only apply to a very small portion of my data set?

If yes, you can most likely use either. Keep reading the questions below to help you make the best decision

If no, we'd recommend the Yes/No set of options

Q2: Do you want to be able to see if someone has actually made a decision on that field?

If yes, use the Yes/No set of options

If no, you can still use either in this case

Q3: Do you want to be able to track and pull just the “no” answers?

If yes, you will need to use Yes/No set of options

If no, you can use either

Q4: Do you want to be able to require an answer?

If yes, use a set of options (if they must select "Yes" then only put one option)

If no, you can use either
