    Just want to be able to create a total from descriptive check boxes.

    Asked by bjcdrama on August 29, 2016 at 12:07 PM

    For example


    box 1  - Pottery for beginners - $90

    box 2 - Stained Glass for beginners - $115


    Can a field be created that will total both if both boxes are checked

    Or more boxes.


    Thanks - Bill

    The guide is a bit out of date, the calculation values field is now under the "Surveying" tab.

    Once you have assigned your options calculation values, total up your fields in a calculation widget:
