Scale questions - provide access to the numerical values via dot notation (answer piping)

It would be nice to be able to access the numerical values of a scale question when output to a google sheet rather than just getting the answer text which is not very useful for statistical analysis.

I’m wondering if there’s a good reason why this isn’t already covered as it seems all other question types have the dot notation to access other attributes under control (i might be missing something).

Hi there Andy :grin:
The value of the Scale type question will be whatever, you input into the options window.
If you were wanting these to transfer to a number value you could definitely achieve this through GSheets itself; creating a calculation that attributes a value to specific text.
More information here.

Alternatively, you also have the ability to use Paperform’s Calculation Field to attribute a value to a submitter’s response.
