    Is there a way to increment a number field based on conditional logic? I want to increment a number field by 1 based on multiple and single choice selections.

    Yes, it's possible to insert text or a calculation into a field using conditional logic by following our guide here: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-Conditional-Logic-Inserts-Text-Calculation-Into-A-Field

    For a general guide on creating smart forms using conditional logic please see our guide here: https://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance please let us know. Thank you.

    Yeah, I've already created the conditional logic to do this but it doesn't seem to work correctly.

    My calculation is "The summary field" + 1 placed back in the Summary Field. But it adds 10 to the summary filed field every time I select the trigger field that the logic is based on.

    Let me ask this... Are you allowed to use the Summary field in the calculation?

    As in Summary Field = Summary Field + 1

    I have this problem all the time. Today I spent over an hour trying to do somthing similar and failed. Even with help from one of my colleagues (EltonCris).

    Can I suggest we submit a feature request for this?

    I got it worked out with a calculation widget. :)
