    Range field (used to input time): Should be able to calculate the total entered time

    Asked by cr3250 on April 26, 2013 at 07:40 PM

    I am working on a Billing Sheet.   The employees need to put the start and end time in the form that I am working on.  I have turned on the "range" feature.     I would like to have it automatically and immediately calculate the total time.  That way if they entered the wrong time, it would automatically say something like 10000 minutes, and they would know they made a mistake.   Basically a "read only" duration field, based on the time they entered.  Is this possible?   Keep in mind I am not a programer  :)   I'm a noob, in a old body.  -Corey L.

    Unfortunately, such option is not available. However, I will try to submit this to our feature request list and hopefully, our developers can integrate this in the future.

    Thank you.

    Does the Total time appear as a value in the subsequent submission reports?

    Why would this need an entirely new thread, when my question is directly related to the field you are speaking about...

    We are trying to stick with one question / request per thread, so that we can provide efficient support, and users can easily browse though different threads with solutions. Also, we can not attach multiple feature request / bug report tickets to the same thread, so that we need a separate thread for each request.

    If you would like to show the total range time value on the submissions page, you can use a contact us form, then we will be able to create a feature request ticket.

    Thank you.
