Many inspections, forms, checklists can have a lot of questions that are “pass/fail”, “yes/no” or some variation of a score or flag that indicates a failed condition or condition that needs attention.
Rather than having to scan through an entire form for the exception conditions you can put a summary into the form that only tracks the exception conditions. This summary can then be used in custom reports and is displayed in-app and on standard generated forms.
Example: One-hundred Pass / Fail conditions are in an inspection form. The user only wants to have to review the failed items.
1) Create a calculation field
2) Make sure that the “field keys” for each pass/fail, yes/ no etc field is named.
3) Here is the script to put into the “Calculated Field”
Notes: + question1 is the Field Key for the question
+ =='Fail' is evaluating an Option Field with 'Fail' as the value it is checking for. This could be Yes or No in a Yes/No field type.
+ "Question 1 Failed" is the text that will appear in the summary field
+ ,\n is puts a return in the text so that the summary appears as a list rather than a sentence.
var issues = '';
if ($question1$ == 'Fail')
issues = issues + 'Question 1 Failed,\n';
if ($question2$ == 'Fail')
issues = issues + 'Question 2 Failed,\n';
