    Can I use Calculator for Multiple Selections

    Asked by LoobyLoo on April 17, 2015 at 01:15 PM

    I want to provide a property value calculation on my form. Each radio button has a value from 1-3 defined by me. For Example:

     

    Number of Bedrooms

    1 = value 1

    2= value 2

    3 += value 3

     

    I would like to add all the selections on the form together for one final number that categorizes the property as either standard, deluxe or luxury.

    Number of Bedrooms

    1 = value 1

    2= value 2

    3= value 3

    Based on these two selections someone choosing #3 in each has now a value of 6.

     

    Can the calculator add up the results of each section? I would have about 5-6 sections that have values.

     

    I have included a partial snap shot of the form I am trying to create.

    Hi,

    This should indeed be possible with the calculation widget and assigning values to each option:

    I see you have calculation values assigned to most of the fields in your form already and that they are being sent to the calculation field.  As far as I can tell, you would just need to add any additional sections to the equation for your calculation widget.  If you are still having any trouble getting this setup, let us know which part of your form is currently giving you trouble and we will be happy to help.
