Hi All - Is it possible to have calculations done within the Google Form itself?  I have a form that needs to be filled out, but their answers will determine what points are assigned.  It needs to score as well.  I could do it if we weren't reliant on Google Apps.

Thanks!
Zack

No, it is not possible at present.
I hope it's something Google considers adding in the future.
The workaround is to create a form ui using Google App Script.
You would need to use 'createServerChangeHandler' to calculate the formula every time the user changed the value.
If you have coding experience it's not difficult...If not, it's a good project to learn App Script.

Cool thanks for your help!  I hope they add it too.  I'm not a big fan of Google Apps but the whole company uses it and it's just another thing to learn lol.
