    Can JofForms perform calculations?

    Asked by rachelcda on June 11, 2010 at 08:20 PM
    I would like to create a form that helps customers estimate prices.

    Eg: There would be a field for number of item A, number of item B, etc and then when they press submit it takes them to a page where it shows the total.

    Is this possible?

    It can do calculations but only if the form is a payment form. For example, add a "PayPal" integration from the "Payment Tools" and then add couple of products on the payment wizard. The user can then select multiple products and quantities for them and then see the total right on the form.

    But this is not possible for non-payment forms. I think that's what you want. I added this to our suggestions list.

    A means of being able to create a simple automatic calculation on the form would be invaluable. 

    In My Case I would like customers to be able select a number of places they want in one box and for it to automatically populate a total payable box. (including subtracting discounts etc) Therefore a way of being able create and change the formula that facilitates this as required.

    No, it is not under development currently and there is no schedule for it. When/if it is implemented I will update this thread.

    Thanks for your suggestions. I added them to the use cases document.

    Hi creativemonster

    Regarding how your company's logo appears as your avatar, when you create a JotForm account and register at gravatar.com with the same email address used to register with us, your gravatar shows up as your avatar.

    Oh my! That's a lot of avatars and gravatars in one sentence! :)

    As to the main issue of this thread, I cannot presently shed any additional light.
