How do you set a checkbox when opening a form with GoTo?

Frank Buckley asked 4 years ago
I am using a GoTo to open the Purchasing Inquiry by Document.  I can open the form fine and set the From/To PO Number, but I can’t see how to chech the Open/Historical/Receipts Received Checkboxes.

Frank,
The bad news is that you currently cannot do this.  There isn’t a method on the goto to set a checkbox field (which is treated as a Boolean in Dexterity).
The good news is, you don’t need to do this.  My assumption here is that you are trying to make a goto to get to the PO to display it.
The better solution (even if this did work) would be to use the Built-In GoTo for the PO’s.
Another user had asked the same question and Jared recommended this.

You just need to be on eOne SLB 2013+ (which you likely are).
they are talked about a bit here as well:

Hi Patrick,
Thanks for the response.  The issue I now have is that the Built-in GOTO from Purchase Orders is looking for the PO Type which confuses me.  The Purchase Order Processing Document Inquiry window doesn’t even have the PO Type on it.  Furthermore, I tried to edit the Build-In GOTO parameters to see if I couldn’t leave it blank and you can’t edit the parameters once you specify them.  I tried removing the Built-in GOTO to start over and it remembers all of the parameter values.  I even tried exiting GP and it still remembers the parameter values.I tried to use another version of the Built-in GOTO from Purchase Order Lines and now it remembers that if I try to add it again.
Is there a way to get rid of the Built-in GOTO so I can enter new parameters?
