How to Assign Calculation Value

Last Update: September 6, 2016

Calculation value is generally used for calculations. It represents the number value of the text options. This is only available on radio button, checkbox and drop-down tools. To assign calculation value on these fields, follow these steps.


1. Assuming you have already a radio field on your form, click that field then click the gear icon to open its properties.


2. On the properties wizard,  set the calculation value under surveying tab like the following.

Take note: For the dropdown field, it always has a blank/empty option, therefore, you must leave or place zero as the first calculation value like the following.

With the new changes in calculation value, when I select the value my dropdown picks the value one level below. For example _

1 = a
2 = b
3 = c

So when i select 2 it picks the value 3.
