    I have the Öther field enabled in a single choice method. Am I able to capture the value in that field for a calculation? At the moment, if I my condition states Ïf filled", it does not pick up the value in the Other field.


    Thanks, Gregg

    This is not possible only with the single choice element. I would like to recommend you to close the "other" option of your single choice element and add a number element instead of it.

    Finally, please create a condition for the number field and by this way, copy the field's value to the calculation field.
