How to Assign Calculation Value

Last Update: May 2, 2017

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) Select you field, and click on its gear icon.

2) Click on Surveying tab.

3) Add the values for each option.


4) That's it. The changes are automatically saved.

Take note: Drop Down field always has an empty option, therefor, you must place a zero in the first line.

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.

Is there a way to format the checkbox responses so that multiple values result in each item on it's own line?

Currently, with the checkbox, multiple values are separated with a comma - that is hard to read. It would be nice to have each checkboxed item show on a new line.

Hi, can I read the values ​​in a spreadsheet from Google sheets instead of writing them in text form? So that they can be filled and modified automatically.
Similarly: can I link a form text to a cell in a Google sheet spreadsheet to show a result based on what is completed in the form?
Thank you

Hola, puedo leer los valores de una hoja de calculo de Google sheets en lugar de escribirlos en forma de texto? De modo que se puedan llenar y modificar automáticamente.
Del mismo modo: puedo vincular un texto del formulario a una celda de una hoja de calculo de Google sheet para mostrar un resultado en base a lo que se completo en el formulario?
