15% Off - Auto Calculation (Missing)

    Asked on November 06, 2017 at 09:11 AM


    In my Ticket Order Form Jotform (https://form.jotform.me/71783263323456), I had it programmed so that when a user enters a dollar amount into the "Total Price - Include Convenience Fees" section, the software would automatically take out 15% and populate the total into the "Total Price" box, where that price would be paid when credit card information is submitted.

    Can you give me the step-by-step features to add that back, including what I have to place in the Settings / Conditions section?

    I don't know what happened as I didn't change any text.

    I added the calculation in your form. Is this what you want?

    It was actually very easy, 

    1. Open the calculation wizard in the field Total Price Less 15%

    2. In the calculation wizard, add the field Total Price - Include Convenience Fees and multiply it by .15 the decimal equivalent of 15%

    Here's a visual guide:

    Is this correct? If not, you can always adjust the formula accordingly.

    It is, thanks. I remember the thread before and could not locate the instructions.

    Do you know why it disappeared?

    Second thought,

    It's not right, make it ".85" which will take 15% off of the total price number entered.

    Also, what information did I need to place "Conditions" section, as when I tried to change the calculations, nothing worked.

    You should not perform a calculation and pass the result to the same field. It will create a loop and the calculation will not be correct. 


    You also do not have to use condition to perform a calculation. You can use only Form Calculation widget.

    How to Perform Form Calculation Using a Widget

    If you want to show total price with 15% off inside of the '15% Off' field, set your calcification like this.
