    How to assign a value to my field and calculate total?

    Asked by DestinyJoe on December 05, 2016 at 07:55 PM

    Please look at my webpage (bargain-basement booklets) on your site. I am  uncertain as to how/where to insert my values of each choice, then calculated and present a total based on my customers choice of my variables.


    I've tried to make the form as simple as possible because I am quite new at this part of webpage building.


    I've tried to use calculate but, how can I calculate a bullet choice with a variable in it, for example?

    Thanks, Fred 856-559-6352

    Hello Fred,

    You can set the prices from properties. Please see the screenshot which I shared below.

    You can follow this way for your other options and finally you can show the total price via "form calculation" widget.

    Our user guides can also help you which are about How to Perform Calculation in the Form and How to Assign Calculation Value.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know. 

    Kind Regards.
