    Is there an easier way to take the sum of a matrix?

    Asked by devincornell on December 15, 2016 at 04:48 PM

    I have a lot of options on my form and each checkbox is worth a dollar value which I have all set up.


    When I want to add them up for checkout though I have to add each field and then insert a "+" between them all. It's a very long and tedious task. Is there a sum function? Or something I am missing?


    I currently have to double what's on my form now and I am loathing setting up all of the addition.

    I tried to find some better way for you, but I'm afraid that the one that you're using is the only one. Since you're using the calculation values for each matrix field, you have to use Form calculations in order to calculate the total and therefore you need to do all adding.

    Here is the guide on how to do calculations with matrix field, but you're already familiar with it.


    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!
