    How do I tally the results from radio buttons?

    Asked by DonGlass on April 29, 2014 at 07:46 PM

    I have a number of radio buttons on my form. 

    Option 1

    Option 2

    Option 3

    Option 4


    I would like to know how many questions were answered 1, and how many questions were answered 2, etc.


    Is there a way to have a running total as the client checks the buttons so that when they finish the form they don't have to go back and count how many 1's, 2's etc?

    I am not a programmer nor do I play one on tv.  I have some technical ability but not indepth. 


    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    Hello DonGlass,

    You can use the visual report as a means of tallying the submissions you received.  With this report, you can also get a visual chart of your submissions.  Please check this user guide to be able to get a better understanding and how to create a visual report.

    In addition, if you have knowledge about pivot tables, you can get your form's submissions in excel format, open it using your MS Office Excel program, and create a report on your excel document using pivot tables. But for this one, you'll need to search Googe for additional information about pivot tables since it's about Microsoft's feature.

    Please let us know if you have questions or concerns.
