    Does Jot Form have a Materials/Area Calculator form?

    Asked by larry on June 13, 2012 at 10:33 AM

    To convert area measurements into cubic yards- for example, to calculate how much bark mulch is needed 3" thick over a 10x100 area? 1000 s/f divided by 27 x .25 = 9.25 cubic yards. Wordpress has them, but it would be covenient for my HTML sites to have one without building one from scratch.

    Hi Larry

    Quite a few users have requested various types of calculation functionality beyond the basic ones possible with the Purchase Order tool but we haven't implemented any such enhanced functionality as yet. However, we may be able to provide a workaround using JavaScript to perform the desired calculations. This would necessitate getting a copy of the form's full source from the Embed Form Wizard, embedding it into a web page and adding the requisite script.

    Would this be a viable option for you?
