    How to change question options from text (shown on form) to number (stored in submission)?

    Asked by kslp on June 16, 2015 at 12:42 PM

    Hello -

    I would like a question's options to show text, (ie, "1 – Needs Development: Has not yet developed this goal. Development in this area could improve overall performance.") but have the information store in the submission as "1", so that I can easily perform calculations when I download all submissions. Is there a way to do this?

    Hallos Emily,

    To pass the numeric values of the selected radio-button to a form calculation field, the field value will then be submitted along with other data as a numeric value which you can then use to perform calculations.
