    How can I add an automatic calculator to an Input Table?

    Asked by dbtmichigan on February 24, 2017 at 03:01 PM

    I'm creating a Time Sheet form.  How can I get the "Total" column to add up what numbers have been entered?

    Please try using the Spreadsheet widget. In this widget, you can assign calculation formulates to designated cells. Here's how: 

    Open your form and go to the Build page. Click the Add Form Element and under the Widgets tab search for the Spreadsheet widget. Add it to your form and check the Properties.

    If that doesn't work for you, you can just use the Form Calculation widget to add the entered values in the Matrix Field. Please take note that the Total will be on separate field and not inside the Matrix table. Please check this user guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/343-How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-in-the-Matrix-Field.

    Hope that helps. If you have questions, please contact us again. Thank you.
