Values for Options

When adding options to Radio Button, Checkbox or Select List fields, you can assign a numerical value to each text option. This enables you to do numerical calculations based on the choices made by the user to those non-numerical questions.

One of the most powerful applications of this concept comes from using 1 for "Yes" and 0 for "No" in a simple Yes/No field.  By adding a calculated field that sums the answers to multiple such questions, you can count the number of those questions to which the user has answered "Yes". This can be very useful in streamlining logical rules.
