using custom user meta to pre-populate checkboxes

  1. I've created some custom fields for users when they register (Country, Organization, etc). Among the custom fields is a checkbox group with two options for users to select their preferred email subscription options (Daily and/or Weekly).

    I'm now attempting to create a nice front-end profile editor page. I've been able to map all other custom fields to my Edit Profile form except the checkboxes. I can only seem to add one parameter name via the "Allow field to be populated dynamically".

    Is there a way to map more than one?

    For check boxes, it should be one parameter name, and multiple values if you want to have multiple check boxes selected.
