    Hi there! I have created a form with 24 questions.

    Asked by ameliabuttress on July 11, 2017 at 04:01 PM

    Hi there! I have created a form with 24 questions. Each is answered with a radio button rating the answer from strongly disagree to strongly agree. I'd like to make it so that there is a different display depending on what answer is input - if someone agrees or strongly agrees with one of the items, I'd like to recommend they look at different material. I added values to the matrix but when I added the calculation field, it seems to add a bunch of zeros to the total. Including a link to the form for review: https://form.jotform.us/71796041502150

    How do I get rid of these extra zeros?

    I cloned your form but I'm finding it quite difficult. I see sometimes the form calculation appends a zero before or after the value. Not quite sure why it does that. It seems to be an issue with the + (plus symbol) appending a zero when it should add it. Perhaps its a bug? We could submit a bug report?

    Also to answer you question about displaying different material based on the users answer. I found a good example by Kevin_G:


    Look like its going to take a bit of work to get this all to work right.
