How to clear any scores and 0's from options fields that have scores applied to them

If an option field has scores assigned to it and you need to remove the scores, when you click Clear All and Update the scores revert to 0.

If an option field has scores assigned to it and you need to remove the scores, when you click Clear All and Update the scores revert to 0.

When you click on "Clear All" the scores are removed. When you click on "Update" to save these changes the scores revert back to all being "0" which still affects your calculations

ONLY click on Clear All and do not click on Update. The changes will be saved without clicking on update (this IS different from adding scores to options)

You can see that the scores AND the 0's have all been removed when you click on "Clear All". Do NOT click on "Update" or the 0's will be returned. This is a different workflow to adding scores to options when they do not have any scores.

Removing scores can be important to get option calculations and table option calculations to work correctly. The example in the image here shows that the calculation does not work when the options have scores

Scores added to options can affect "option calculation" questions. The image in the example here shows that when Weather is Poor-Wind, Poor- Rain etc, the "Weather Affecting Performance" answer should return "Yes". However, when scores are assigned to the weather options, the option calculation will not work. When the Weather options scores are cleared, the calculation works (as shown in the image in the step below).

Removing the scores from options used in option calculations enables the option calculation to work correctly.

The example here shows that the "Weather Affecting Performance" option calculation now returns "Yes". This is correct, but in the image in the step above it returns "No" because the scores interfere with the calculation.
