    Hey guys! Now that you've implemented the Multi-Type Columns in the Input Table (YAY!), would you be able to do a page like this for how to do calculations based on answers with dropdowns, etc? I may be over thinking it but it seems quite complicated.

    For instance, I want to be able to populate a "Describe below" box if someone selects an answer in one column that uses a dropdown, but also populate a different "Describe" box if they select a radio button answer, etc.

    Thanks!

    Hi @HuttonSafetyGroup!

    Thank you for appreciating one of our new features, yay! Currently, it is only possible to assign calculation values or use conditions with Radio Button and Checkbox column types only. One workaround I can suggest would be to place a Textbox column type right after the Dropdown column so that it can be used as a describe box. 

    Radio buttons and checkboxes can be used to bring up describe boxes conditionally. I have created a sample form for you to try and clone if you would like to see the conditional logic setup.
