Use linked values with a unit in calculations

Previously, if a numeric field had a unit assigned to it, you could not pull it into a different Event Form as a Linked Value and use it in subsequent calculations. Now you can now use Linked Values with a unit (e.g. kg's or cm's) in a calculation in the Event Form you are linking to.

You can set up a numeric field with a unit (e.g. weight with kg's)

The image in the step here shows that the first field of Body weight does not have any units. The fields Body Weight with unit and Height both have units assigned to the values.  Previously, you could not link any field with units into another event form nd use it in an equation. This meant you could not link Body Weight (if it had a unit) into another form like a Max Strength form and use the weight field to convert 1RM to a percentage of body weight.  Now you can link a field with units into another Event Form and use it in calculations (as outlined in the steps below).

Set up a Linked Value using the field with a unit. This can now be used in subsequent calculations (e.g. in the Back Squat % Body Weight calculation)

Set up a Linked Value using the field with a unit. This can now be used in subsequent calculations (e.g. in the Back Squat % Body Weight calculation)

The example here shows the field "Body Weight with unit" is being set up as a linked value (from the Anthropometry form) into the Maximal Strength Test form. It is then used in the Back Squat % Body weight calculation.

The linked value with a unit is calculating correctly as part of the Back Squat strength calculation.

You should now be able to use any field with a unit assigned to it as a linked value and use it in subsequent calculations
