Multiple Choice - Text only shows calculated values

    I would like to show the values that are selected in a multi-select question. I've added calculated values because this is also necessary. Now I only see the numbers and not the text of the multi-select value. Is there a way that this shows the text instead of the calculated value?

    You were right. When you assigned calculation values to a Multiple Choice field, its return value will always be the assigned calculation value, not the text. If you need to show their actual text, the assigned values should be turned off.

    Also, may we know what is the purpose of assigning values to them? Are you going to use the said field in a calculation? If so, please let us know in detail so we could provide suggestions/workarounds. 

    Or you can just assign a value using conditions if you'll be using that field in a calculation. Here's a guide for that: How-to-Insert-Text-or-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-Conditional-Logic
