How to use assigned values of choices | Zoho Forms

How to use the values assigned to choices in Formulas, Email Notifications, Thank You page, and Integrations?

Take an order form, for instance. How do you calculate the amount to be paid by your customer?
Check out this quick video on how you can use values assigned to the products and collect payments.

Here's how you can achieve this in detail :
  1. Build an order form with the required fields. (Check out the tips to build a good order form). Choose a choice-based field, like Dropdown, Radio, or Image Choices to list your products.
  2. Under the Properties of the choice-based field, go to Advanced > Assign Values. Enter the numeric or text values for each choice and save. Note that these assigned values should be equal to the payment amount you want to collect.

                       Assign Values
  3. Now, add a Formula field to your form. You can set the formula as Product selected * Quantity , where the numeric value assigned to the selected choice is taken for the calculation.

              Formula Field               

Then, choose the Formula field to autofill the calculated amount in the Payment field and collect the required payment.
