    Hi. I am trying to build a quote form and offer a discount to the customer after completing the quote Is there a way I cn do this using the form calculation widget. i.e, a total is generated using the calculator, but i want the customer to be able to choose one of our offers and have the calculator automatically deduct it from the original generated amount. Thanks.

    I'm not sure how the discount should be calculated.

    You can use the field you added for calculating it:

    And simply deduct the price. But, what defines the discount, if you can give us an example, we could certainly help you?

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for additional information. 

    I understand what you're trying to do, I just wasn't sure how they choose if they will pay full or deposit.

    So I decided to create something like this:

    1) I added three short text fields for calculation purposes (those can be hidden) and one radio button:

    2) Then I created these conditions:

    Those calculations can be passed to Payment field later for processing.

    Could that work for you?
