    Hello - 

     

    I'll start with some context;  I've created numerous fields for 14 inherent risk areas, each having its own: Is this a Risk, Impact, Likelihood, Raw Score, and Adjusted Score custom attributes.  Logic and explanation for each is as follows:

     

    Is this a Risk?: Boolean - User checks for "Yes" or leaves blank for "No"

    Impact: Risk Impact Lookup - Low (1)/Moderate (2)/High (3) - User selects one of the options if there's a risk

    Likelihood: Risk Probability Lookup - Remote (1)/Moderate (2)/High (3) - User selects one of the options if there's a risk

    Raw Score: Impact * Likelihood - Calculated attribute

    Adjusted Score: (Raw Score * Weight %) + Raw Score - Calculated attribute

     

    There's another custom attribute named "Count Is this a Risk? True Flag" which is a calculated value that adds every "Is this a Risk?" boolean attribute to determine the count of true flags.

     

    The roadblock I've encountered is being unable to add the above Count True Flag attribute into the process for calculating the adjusted scores. I would like to set the above calculated attribute within the "IF" section and the "Then Go To.." would go to a step depending on what the # of True count is.   However, I'm unable to add the calculated attribute into the IF column as it's not an available selection.

     

    Is there a workaround, or some way I can add a calculated (number) attribute into the IF section of a process?

     

    Please do not hesitate asking questions for clarification if needed.

     

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Issue resolved, no action required.

     

    Although the GUI builder does not list calculated attributes as available selections, I'm able to hard-code this into the IF statement using the attribute ID.
