    Showing calculations based on answers

    Asked by Martin de Goede on September 18, 2013 at 06:29 AM

    I'd like to create a form that shows fields with calculations based on answers to help with the next questions.

    For example.

    Question 1 - number of people

    Question 2 - number of people that can sit at a tabel

    Field showing minimum number of tables required

    Question 3 - number of tabels desired


    Is this possible using HTML in a text field ?

    I'm afraid that it is not possible to make calculations using form fields at the moment, anyways you can download the form source code and add some extra Javascript calculation in order to achieve what you are looking for.

    How to get the form source code

    On the other hand, you can try by using conditions, for example: "if a number field value is greater/less than a fixed value, then show other form fields"

    Using conditions

    Hope it helps
