    Hi,

     

    I am working on a form at the moment MMT Application Form". It has a number of conditional options and these are all working fine. However one of the questions (number 6) is "Please Select the Days you are booking for" and the user has 7 options to indicate. What I would like to do is set up a calculation field that will return the number of selected items. So if  user selects 2 checkboxes then I get 2 or 5 will return 5 so I can use this to calculate a costing. Can you help. I have been trying for hours but with no luck.

     

    Thanking you

    Hi,

    You can add values for the Checkboxes options from the field properties, and they will be added together automatically when selected.

     

    Here is a demo: https://form.jotform.com/61234411170946.
