    Good morning,

    I am creating a form for our nurse leaders that helps them to calculate percentage of compliance with a specific practice by their units and overall hospital. I wast not able to find a way to modify the spreadsheet widget so I used the Matrix widget under survey tools and was able to get the table set up the way that I want it. The challenge I am having now is getting the matrix to calculate the percentages. I have included a link to my form below.

    Is this the best widget to use? If not, are there alternatives that will accomplish what I need?

    Thank you for your help!

    If I understand you correctly, you would like to have a column or row with the total of the results. I have searched our records and found a similar thread to your request:

    I have tested this in the new wizards and it seems that this feature has been remove. How ever you are still able to use the old condition wizard add &old in the URL

    This will enable the old condition wizard.

    I have created a ticket, so our team will add this feature in the new condition wizard.

    Glad we were able to help. Like I mentioned, I have created a ticket so this feature can be added in the new wizard.

    I forgot to mention, if you require to use the new wizard. You just need to add &TEST in the URL instead of &OLD.

    Once we have any information on this request, we will be informing you.

    We've made improvements that allow you to work with matrix fields easier in the new wizard.

    This should also fix all errors associated with it.

    If you still run in to problems, feel free to write.

    Thank you
