    Hi there

    I refer to the following URL for which I am asking you questions mentioned below.

    https://www.jotform.com/build/80020254502439

    I think the input field is from Option of Dropdown Properties, though,

    why are options related to Selected by Default and Calculation Values?

    I would like to know the outline of the following items as follows.

    ・Use Calculation Values

    ・Calculation Values

    ・Show Text in Empty Option

    ・Shuffle Options

    I will wait for your answer.

    ・Use Calculation Values

    ・Calculation Values

    You can use this options if you want to perform a calculation inside of a form. For more details please check this guides:

    How to Assign Calculation Value

    How to Perform Form Calculation Using a Widget

    ・Show Text in Empty Option

    The first field option inside of the dropdown fields is empty by default. With the Show Text in Empty Option, you can add a text to that option. It can be used as a hint to let your users know that they have to select an option form the dropdown list.

     ・Shuffle Options 

    This option will randomly change the order of the field options.

    I have not received your reply yet.

    >How to Assign Calculation Value

    I think Calculation Value has nothing to do with my trial form, though, let me ask you since

    I intend to open the thread based on the above guide.

    >・Show Text in Empty Option

    Confirmed.

    >・Shuffle Options 

    Your reply does not still ring a bell.Please give me a concrete example.

    I will wait for your answer.

    ~I don't understand this question. But if selected by default, the calculation should trigger automatically. If not, it should be selected to fire up the calculation. 


    Shuffle Options 

    ~Here's a demo form for this option: https://www.jotform.com/80261675805964. The original options are laid out this way; ordered as A to F:
