Count checkboxs on multi-select list

Recommended Posts


Im trying to create a feedback  form for a new empoloye.

his manager will create a new form with a unic Email and password and on the update form he will see only his own relevant form.

He will need to fill in a multi select list the topics he learned.

after the update i want him to see a chart that show how many topics he finished (%). 

Is it possible?

It seems like Caspio cant count checkboxs on the multiselect fields

Hello @Amirf,

As far as I understood from your description, you have a field in the table with the List-String data type. And on the Submission form it is set to the Multiselect Listbox:


If so, List data types have a list of restrictions and it is better to avoid using them in case you need more than just submitting and displaying the values.

1) You may use Text(255) data type instead and apply this solution to allow multiselection


2) Since selected values are added to the table as comma-separated values, it is possible to count them in the Formula field:

WHEN LEN([@field:Text_field]) = 0
ELSE LEN([@field:Text_field]) - LEN(REPLACE([@field:Text_field], ',', '')) + 1

Replace the field name with your local field name.

Here is the result:



I am hot sure that this is the case for you but hope this helps.

Hello everyone, I believe I have asked this before through live chat. However, this can be implement via custom coding. So, I decided to reach out to Caspio's Professional Services team. I contacted my Customer Success Manager to schedule a meeting with them but they also advised me that we can open a support ticket or try here: https://www.caspio.com/services/professional-services/ 

This was a splendid experience for sure. I found this forum post as well and you can use this for reference: 

Also, if you want a quick meeting with this, I suggest that you reach out to your Customer Success Manager to better consult with the feature you would like to achieve.
