Usage in calculations

  • With the list question, you can add multiple options and give them a numerical value. When you use the question reference in a formula, that value of the selected option is returned.
  • When you select the "multiple selection" display type, the total of all selected values will be returned
  • To check if a specific item is selected in a multiple selection, you can use the reference QX{OA}. This returns the value of the option if it's selected, otherwise it returns 0.
  • To return the label of the selected option(s) in a formula, use QX{label}.
