    Hi Guys & Gals

    I've had reason to use the grading field for the first time, so that people filling in the form can tell me what %-age of their time they spend on specific market focus.

    I can specify that the total of the grading fields should not exceed 100, and jotforms also provides a warning when someone enters values that total above 100, BUT jotforms does not prevent a total of 100 being submitted if they choose to ignore the warning.

    Rather than simply issuing a message when the total exceeds the specified limit, is it possible to have validation on this to prevent it?

    Hi Mike,

    Sorry but that's how grading tool works currently. Let me please forward this to our development team as a feature request. Sorry though for we can't provide any ETA on this. But once the correction is added, we'll let you know.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for reporting this bug-like thing, it is really inconvenience to have this. Where user can just ignore the warning and input whatever they want.

    Well , I succesfully replicate the problem and found the cause. So I fixed it for you, I have put a validation so user input should not exceed to the total number given. There is also a feature that the user can only enter "numeric" values. Look at this one. Please report back if problem still persist.
