Calculator is a great tool for making quizzes, shopping baskets and more. You can keep scores for answers, or total up prices on an order form.
How Typeform’s Calculator works
Our Calculator (a PRO feature) allows you to apply calculations and a score/price to your questions. Each answer to a question can be given different values, and calculations can be made on those values. This score can be carried from one question to the next – additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions can be made throughout.
You can keep one score for each typeform. We don’t currently support multiple variables (but watch this space!). If you want to make a test with multiple scores, you can link different typeforms together using Redirect on completion, and then export and combine your results in a spreadsheet application.
How to use Calculator
1. Click the colored block icon to open Settings, and the Calculator icon will appear. Click this to open the calculator editor.
2. Now you can create a calculation. In this example, we give one point to the total Score if someone answers ‘One’.
You can also use subtract, multiply or divide:
3. You can add multiple scores to a question, so each answer has a different value:
When you’ve finished adding calculations to a question, simply click the X in the upper right corner of the panel to close the tool, your calculations are automatically saved.
To see Calculator results, open your typeform from your Workspace, and head to the Results panel:In the Summary section you can see all the final totals that Calculator has tallied.
If you want to see results for specific submissions, click on the Responses tab:
Clicking on any submission in the list on the left, will open the responses on the right, where you will see the Calculator totals for that submission.
You can also view Calculator results in a spreadsheet if you export your results.
Try these three example typeforms that use Calculator:
This examination applies scores to answers, giving respondents a total at the end. Different score ranges lead to different Thank You Screens. Learn how to do that here.
This Shopping basket totals the cost of products respondents want to buy, allows for discounts to be applied, and pipes that total to our payment field, powered by Stripe. Find out how to build one.
In this quiz, like the examination, a score is applied to answers. It shows respondents a different Thank You Screen depending on their score. Here’s how to build a quiz with Calculator.
