    When calculation output is set as text, result should be the text value instead of the calculation value

    Asked by EltonCris on November 30, 2014 at 01:03 PM

    This idea is originally from this thread https://www.jotform.com/answers/466589?.

    When the calculation value is set to output as text like the following image,

    Then output the text value instead of the calculation value. These are the fields where you can set calculation values like dropdown, radio and checkbox.

    I'm not certainly sure if this is a perfect idea to implement as it might affect existing users who has been using this feature the way it works right now but I think it would be a good addition if it would output the text value when it's set as text and output the calculation value when it set as number output.

    If you need further clarifications about this, let me know.
