    How can I have dynamic pricing calculated for 5 months out?

    Asked by cowebpro on November 30, 2016 at 03:51 PM

    I'm building a lift ticket ordering form.  Lift tickets have dynamic pricing base on the start date, number of days and type of ticket.  I want a running total on the tabs, and depending on the amount of individuals a person selects on page one of the form, the form will show that many pages for information on individuals lift tickets.  And also a "review" on the last page of the form with all the lift ticket items listed with pricing, before sending them to our checkout page.

    When I cloned your form, I saw a couple of errors in the Calculation and Conditions that need to be addressed first for you to get a better understanding on how this could work. I recorded a short video so it's easier to follow:

    Some important points:

    1. The calculation accepts TEXTS (brown bg) and NUMBERS (black bg)

    2. For calculations to work, you need to ensure you're working with NUMBERS

    3. If you wish to append TEXTS with NUMBERS, just type them in then press the tab key (just like how I did it with $ above)

    4. To toggle between TEXTS and NUMBERS, just click it

    I also noticed you're using the Purchase Order field. I'm assuming you're aiming to pass the calculated total to the payment field. To do that, just set the GET PRICE FROM option of your payment field to the Calculation Field like so:

    Related guide: How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field

    With those things cleared up, now we need to better understand how your computation will work. If you could give us an example calculation, that would be great. But an even better approach is if you could setup your calculation first from your end, using your own workflow/logic, then get back to us if there's you're stuck with something so we can assist.

    So i've put in all my conditional statements for the Adult-18+ lift tickets for date ranges 12-1-16  to 4-14-17 and now the calculation isn't working.  I followed your video example above and it worked with the 2 conditions.  Now that I have them all in there it is not calculating for some reason.  Here's the link https://form.jotform.com/63335321957155
