Separate Values can be used to display an option label that is different from the saved value. For example, if your user selects 'Black t-shirt', you can store the value as 'black t-shirt $25.00'. This is an option for Checkbox, Radio, and Dropdown fields.
Enabling Separate Values
Follow the steps below if you would like to enable separate values for a Checkbox, Radio, or Dropdown field.
- Go into edit the field that will be using separate values.
- Check the 'Use separate values' box in the Field Options.
- Modify your Saved Value column so it is distinct from the Option Label column. For example, you may set an option label to 'Black t-shirt' and set the saved value as 'black t-shirt $25.00'.
- Each saved value must be unique or you will have no way of knowing which option a user selected. If you would like to use the same saved value for multiple options, such as a price or a number, you can add unique text in front of the number or price. For example, you could set 'Blue - 5' and 'Black - 5' as two unique saved values. If you are including this field in a numeric calculation, the preceding text will be ignored.
- If you would like to show the saved value in an email, View, or confirmation message use [x show="value"] where x is your field ID/key.
Bulk Editing Separate Values
When bulk editing separate values, if you simply type 'Option 1' on a single line, then 'Option 1' will be saved as both the option label and the saved value.
Alternatively, if you type in 'Option 1 | This is the saved option', then 'Option 1' will be the option label and 'This is the saved option' will be saved value.
