Hi,
Thank you for your prompt response.
How do I set a formula to calculate the highest total of the 4 totals and then for it to show related information to that total on the next page?
e.g.
Q1= 35
Q2 = 30
Q3= 22
Q4= 18
So the highest total is Q1 but instead of showing the actual formula to the user,
[cid:image001.png@01D1EFB4.83DD5F90]
It shows information related to that result on the Next Page:

This is possible to use a max function to get the highest value.

Hi,
What I am trying to do is create a quiz of 28 questions, of which every 7 questions targets 1 of the 4 elements.
Based on the user’s answer, there will only be 1 element with the highest score.
When that element is determined, they get their results (image & a description about their results) on the next page.
So the user will only see the 28 questions and the image & result description.
For example:
Element Score
1 (q1-7) 35
2 (q8-14) 30
3 (q15-21) 22
4 (q21-28) 18
1. A formula calculates the highest score total – element 1 (do I have to create a 5th Form calculation widget for this?)
2. Displays only the image and textbody linked to element 1 on the second page

Hello,

If you need to have to find the highest score selected, and its value is not related or dependent to the value of those that are added, you will need to have a separate calculation field for it.

We'll look forward to your update on this matter.

Thanks.

Sorry for the LATE response. I wasn't able to work out how to show the result with the highest score.

For example:

Score

Quadrant 1 has the highest score, I want it to be the only result showing.

I want the result to show on the next page as:

So I need assistance to:

1) calculate to show only the Quadrant with the top score

2) display the image & text associated with that Quadrant

Thanks!

@jannyfer.chua,

I have checked this form on your account http://www.jotform.co/form/70166925523861 and found that you have already added the 5th calculation widget and you are getting the highest value already:

I can also see you have set up custom thank you messages based on the highest result:

If you want to skip to a page instead of showing a custom thank you message then I would suggest you to check this guide: How-to-Skip-Pages-Using-Conditional-Logic

If you have any question, let us know.
