Hidden calculation widget is not calculating the fields

    I have a hidden form calculation widget field that is based on values from several multiple choice calculation value fields. The calculation works fine when I show it in the form, but I when I hide it, it defaults to a zero value.

    How can I have the form calculation field calculate without showing it to the user?

    Thank you.

    The problem is related to the conditional logic. You have a conflicting condition in the form. Look at the following filter of conditions:


    Condition #3 hides the Passcode field by default.

    Now, your passcode field based on the following screenshot of the condition is used to show the fields from the calculation.


    Condition #1 from the above screenshot hides the Percent Complete field when you are on the edit URL.

    You have the form set not to Clear Hidden fields, but when the form loads, there is no calculation since the fields are hidden.
