    Radio, dropdown, checkbox with alternate vallue

    Asked by mendcrm on April 28, 2017 at 12:47 PM

    I have a radio selection but can use whatever works.

    option 1 = singular language

    option 2 = plural language

    The actual value is about 2 paragraphs of content. I am trying to figure out a way to let my user click the option and have the content be the value submitted...Does that make sense? I don't want my user to have to read the values before selecting a choice.

     

    Example:

    radio button 1 - Singular Language - 

    Actual Value of radio button 1 would be - I went to the store and bought a jotform subscription

    radio button 2 - Plural Language - 

    Actual Value of radio button 2 would be - We went to the store and bought a jotform subscription

    It is only possible to assign numerical calculation values to fields.  If you want though, you could use conditions to update a text field with the appropriate text when a selection is made:

    Using your example it would be similar to this:

    IF radio button 1 IS EQUAL TO Singular Language - 

    INSERT:

     

    I went to the store and bought a jotform subscription

    INTO Text Field

    IF radio button 2 IS EQUAL TO Plural Language -

    INSERT:

     

    We went to the store and bought a jotform subscription

    INTO Text Field
