Symbols 6-state Star in Forms

When creating a form, is there a way to not allow the 0-star ("empty") be an option? I only want them to rate 1 through 5, not 0 through 5.

If there isn't a way to remove the 0-star choice, can I set up logic that they can't submit the form with a 0-star selected?


Either will work, but the former is preferred. Thanks all!

    Hi @dhall,

    There isn't a way to hide the 0 star from the field on the form. You can build logic into the star field though. This would require you to create another field/column, drop down single select ,"Restrict to list values only" switched on. Add this field to your form and remove the star rating from the form.

    In your star rating field/column, add this nested if formula, and make it a column formula: =IF(Rating@row = 1, "One", IF(Rating@row = 2, "Two", IF(Rating@row = 3, "Three", IF(Rating@row = 4, "Four", IF(Rating@row = 5, "Five")))))


    Hope this helps! Have a great day.

    best,

    Hi @dhall

    I hope you're well and safe!

    To add to Brad's excellent advice/answer.

    I recently did something similar for a client.

    Add a dropdown column and paste the below stars.

    Hmm good solution, thanks for providing. As I have several columns using ratings, I don't want to have to create all the additional helper columns, at least not at this time.

    I'll instruct them in the form to use "Empty" only if it is Not Applicable.

    Next time I create a new form, I'll keep this solution in mind. Thanks!

    Thats a neat solution, instead of being limited to the dropdown. Thanks for sharing!
