    Put in calculation widget the number of filled up cells in matrix table field

    Asked by mimiramirez on December 18, 2016 at 04:46 PM
    is there a way to put in a calculation widget the amount of cells filled in in a matrix, I need to put the number of  filled cells that my respondents give in a widget so I can do the same as you helped me before, so if more than 2 projects are written that's equal to 4 points, 2 projects filled = 3 pts, one project=2pt, none=1. This is going on in question 2.5

    I believe this is very much possible to achieve on the Form Builder using the matrix table field + calculation.

    Please refer to the user guide: How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-in-the-Matrix-Field

    Base on the user guide, you can assign value/number to the cells of the matrix table. You can then use those values in the calculation (i.e. if you assign 1 value to each cells you can count them)

    Hope this help. Let us know how we can be of further assistance.

    Thanks.
