How can I change the default measurement in body weight widget?Asked by swimtolivebellingham on June 25, 2014 at 01:31 PM
I was able to change the default measurement to feet for the height widget, but I cannot get the wizard to allow me to change KG to LBS in the weight widget. I have deleted the widget and re-added it but I still cannot get anything to happen when I click on the wizard wand icon within this editing mode.
Thank you for contacting us.
You can switch from KGs to LBS and vise versa by clicking the KGS or LBS label itself. See image below:
Let us know if you still need further help.
Although that does work while filling out the actual form, I need to be able to change the default on the form to pounds because the individuals filling out the forms are not making the switch on their own. While editing the form I have clicked on that label in your image and it does switch to pounds but after I save it and come back to the form it has reverted back to KGs.
The height widget allows changing the default from CM to feet but the weight widget doesn't allow the default to be saved to lbs.
I understand your point. Currently, this is not possible on the widget but I will open a request ticket to have it added on its feature. I won't be able to give you time frame as to when this would be added since our developers are working on a ticket prior to this but we will notify you though this thread as soon as we have an update.
We appreciate your patience.
Okay. Thanks for your help.
I've added "Default unit" param to widget so now you can set desired unit. If you don't see this param, please try to remove widget and add it again.
Awesome! Thank you! We're registering swimmers who need wetsuits and now I don't have to wonder if that 5'3" swimmer is really 264 lbs (because she entered 120 kg)
Thanks again :)
