    So this functions is only for the form itself and can not be done on the dashboard at all - correct?

    My purpose here is this: to make it so 5 viewers of the form results can rate the response from the form on the dashboard.

    My Solution using these tools: Each Response is viewed and rated by each judge - the calculation field is recalculated each time and the form is submitted by each judge with each new calculation.

    End result each response has a a calculated rating on the dashboard.

    Will this work?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You are correct.  Calculations only work within the form itself.  Though you can have the ability to set calculation values to fields within the form, there is not currently a way to allow for rating submissions from the dashboard.  To add additional data, you would need to edit the submission itself.

    You could, however, have a hidden portion of the form with a judges rating section.  This would be separated from the regular form using form collapses and hiding them based a code entered into a text box in the form:

    Then send the link to edit the form to all the judges when each submission is completed:

    Here is a quick test form to show you what the judges section would look like:

    Other than a workaround such as that, it is not possible to have judges rate submissions.
