    How to add calculation value for each options in button checkbox and other selector widgets?

    Asked by loicsebe on December 19, 2016 at 07:59 PM


    I have been trying almost all the fancy looking selector widgets and they all seem to miss the very basic features that the standard selector fields have (checkboxes, radio, dropdown). 

    There is no way to assign a calculation value for each option. This is a big drawback for order forms and workarounds are a pain (I had to use 7 additional fields and 7 additional rules to achieve what I was able to achieve with one regular checkbox field and one rule...). 

    Similarly, the selector widgets are also missing the feature to set a minimum and a maximum of choices. This is a big problem for a widget which main's purpose is to allow users to make choices. 

    Those 2 features are a must for a selector field in my opinion and I am very surprised that they are missing. Even more when the basic fields have those features. 

    Is there a chance to see those features added at some point? 



    PS: widgets that have tried are: 

    Multiple Selection

    Button Checkboxes

    Image Checkboxes 

    Button Radios

    Hello loicsebe,

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to add calculation values for each options in the widget. The only option available currently is to add another field for calculation value of each options which you have already added in your form successfully.

    I am creating a feature request and sending it to our backend team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Since we cannot send more than one feature request in one ticket, I have moved your second question to a new thread and you will be answered here:  https://www.jotform.com/answers/1015677

    Thank you!
