## TRUE() and FALSE() functions overview

TRUE() and FALSE() functions

#### NOTE

`TRUE()`and `FALSE() `functions generate the logical value true and false, respectively, and output a 1 or a 0.

These functions are more commonly used within a conditional statement, like this:

``````IF ({Cost} = {Price}, TRUE (), FALSE ())
``````

## Using TRUE() in Airtable

Using TRUE()

Using another example scenario, let's say that you're a hiring manager and want to track candidates who have made it through three major stages in the hiring process.

You could use `TRUE() `within a conditional statement to output one message if they passed all stages, and another message if they didn't.

``````IF(
AND(
{Stage 1}=TRUE(),
{Stage 2}=TRUE(),
{Stage 3}=TRUE()
),
"Passed all stages",
"Not all stages complete"
)``````

## Using FALSE() in Airtable

Using FALSE()

Let's use the same hiring process scenario as before, except we'll structure the formula differently to utilize `FALSE()`instead.

``````IF(
AND(
{Stage 1},
{Stage 2},
{Stage 3}
)
=
FALSE(),
"Not all stages complete",
"Passed all stages"
)``````

You'll notice that the two different formulas output the exact same result (see examples below).

``````IF(
AND(
{Stage 1}=TRUE(),
{Stage 2}=TRUE(),
{Stage 3}=TRUE()
),
"Passed all stages",
"Not all stages complete"
)``````

``````IF(
AND(
{Stage 1},
{Stage 2},
{Stage 3}
)
=
FALSE(),
"Not all stages complete",
"Passed all stages"
)``````
