We use checkboxes across the platform to help users select specific settings, or to make declarations. To make checkbox fields as clear as possible, follow these rules:
Checkbox fields should indicate to a user what will happen when they check the box. So, avoid negative language that makes the user check the box in order for something not to happen.
If the checkbox field includes a declarative sentence, use first person pronouns.
All checkbox field text should be in sentence case i.e. the first letter of the first word is capitalized and everything else is in lower case unless it’s a proper noun or feature name. Always err on the side of minimal punctuation, so leave out full stops and commas where possible.
