    Hello Jotform!

    I have the following questions:

    1. Can a Jotform form stand as a stand alone mobile app?

    For instance, if a client wants to pass an order, to use a mobile app instead of going to his browser

    2. If 1. is ok, can we add a handful of order forms in the same app? 

    I want to create an "orders app" for a bunch of different suppliers, so a client who works with some (or all) of them could use a single app to pass an order to each one.

    3. (very important) Is there a way to receive only the filled-in data of one order form's fields? We are using the "Sliders with Calculated Result" plugin

    Actually when a form is validated, we receive the confirmation email with aaaall the fields, regardless if they where filled or not. Is there a way to get only the filled-in/used fields? Your built-in conditional logic applies only by form element, not by form field (The problem here is that if we create for each product reference a form element, the form will be hugely long).

    4. Get total value order

    Check here please our form draft and as you will see, we get the total amount of the order per form element (=category of product). But I couldn't find a way to get a total order value at the end. How I could do that? 


    Thanks in advance !

    Our forms are responsive by default. So they should work in any device's web browser automatically. 

    Now, if you want to embed your form in an app its possible using a web view UI component. Note that this would be different for Android and iOS. And would likely require developers that are skilled in each field.

    Well no, its not possible to combine multiple forms to have a common payment configuration. However, it would be possible to select a form and complete an order one by one.

    But, I believe this would require developers fluent in Android and iOS. We recommend hiring freelance developers from the upwork recruitment website: https://www.upwork.com

Your built-in conditional logic applies only by form element, not by form field (The problem here is that if we create for each product reference a form element, the form will be hugely long).

    Your sliders with a calculated result widgets are using default values of zero. As they have a default value the result will show on submissions (if they were filled or not). 

    You would need to delete the default value so that empty fields are not displayed on submission.


    4. Get total value order

    Check here please our form draft and as you will see, we get the total amount of the order per form element (=category of product). But I couldn't find a way to get a total order value at the end. How I could do that? 

    Unfortunately its not possible to use the values of the widgets in calculations. 

    If you want to do that you would need to use the scale rating field instead of a widget.
