    Asked on September 25, 2017 at 10:40 PM

    May I impose on you guys once again, I have spent a couple of days practising with this concept and feeling somewhat overwhelmed, probably because I keep getting interrupted. Mike G very kindly created the form which I have used but I now want to add to the equation and am getting lost!

    After the day start time, I want to add, start break time then finish break time and then day finish then total hours minus the break time taken.

    I thought this would be a simple task! woe is me! so could one of you help me yet again by creating a form which I can clone? 

    Many thanks in anticipation.

    I wanted to update you regarding this form. 

    I worked on this issue and, since I worked on it before, there are some obstacles there, like the whole hour, for example, if break starts at 1:40 and ends at 2:10 it requires a lot of calculations to make that half an hour. But it is doable.

    Anyhow, I'm still working on this and I will get back to you as soon as I finish.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Thanks Nik, from your comments, I wouldn't have had a hope of working this one out. Thanks again for your perseverance!

    Thank you for your patience.

    I created the form for calculating the working hour with break time included. Here is the link: https://form.jotformpro.com/72681416651963

    Ther boxes with arrows you can hide, since it is not necessary for the end user to see them.

    Please check the form and feel free to clone it: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Let us know how it worked for you.

    Thank you!
