    Doing calculations based on the selections in Matrix

    Asked by corporatecleaning on November 26, 2014 at 02:26 PM

    Hi All!;

    Is it possible to conduct calculations on a Matrix with check boxes or radio buttons?


    My columns are: Meets Standard, Below Standard, Not Applicable.


    My rows are: Entry Cleaned, Kitchen Cleaned, Bathroom Cleaned, Office Cleaned, and warehouse cleaned.


    I want to divide meets standard by the sum of meets standard and below standard. I do not want N/A items calculated.


    (Meets Standard)/((Meets Standard)+(Below Standard))

    No N/A's are to be included in calculation.


    Thank You in advance!

    Unfortunately that would not be possible at this time, but you could do that by changing the matrix into the regular checkboxes falling one after another.

    Based on what I saw I would recommend using radio buttons as it seems that the values can be either one or another, not more of them at the same time, which would be best achieved with the radio buttons.

    Do let us know if you would like to go down that road and need any assistance setting it up.

    Best Regards,
