Summation Fields

Summation fields sum the values contained in Single Selection fields by the assigned weights or in Numeric fields set as integers. Summation fields are defined in SBM Composer, but you can view fields selected to sum.


The following Summation field attributes can be modified for default fields in projects and transition fields. Attributes set for fields in the Default Fields list apply to all transitions; attributes set for fields for a transition apply only to that transition.

Transition Actions

The following options are available for fields when you are editing a transition and enable you to control field values for the transition. For example, you may want to clear an existing value for a required field when a transition is executed, forcing users to provide a new value. These options apply to all field types for transitions.
  • Leave Value Unchanged

    Select to retain the field's current value when the transition is complete.

  • Clear Value

    Select to clear the field's current value.

  • Set Value to Default Value

    Select to use a default value for the field as the user executes the transition. You can then select a default value.

Note: For Summation fields, the Set Value to Default Value option overrides the field's automatic behavior.
