    How to do calculations with checkboxes?

    Asked by nitetraincoach on October 09, 2015 at 03:34 PM

    I am having trouble creating a total field with the conditions function and check boxes. I have 5 different boxes that I need to connect different values to and be added to the weekly services sub-total when they are checked. When I used the conditions function I was able to add the values but they wouldn't total together when more than one was checked. I put the values needed in each field only as a reference.

    What I would suggest is to actually use Calculation Values option in checkboxes (also available for dropdowns and radio buttons) that will allow you to do this much easier.

    You can see more about this here: How to Assign Calculation Value

    Once you do, all that you would need is the Form Calculation widget to capture the total.

    You can see more about this on this guide: How to perform calculation in the form?

    Of course, if you have any issues with the same, do let us know and we would be happy to assist.
