    Suggestion - add some math functions

    Asked by bankruptcynews on June 02, 2011 at 05:28 PM

    I practice law as well as teach law to bankruptcy attorneys.

    My specialty is delinquent taxes.

    As part of the preparation for the initial consultation, I direct the client to go to my web site (wwwTaxJustice.com) and open a "Budget" form, which is a Jotform.

    The form asks the client to list his/her average monthly expenses for various expense categories (rent, gas, food, etc.).

    I wish I could have the Jotform add the figures and give a total at the bottom of the form. That would save me a bunch of time adding them up manually.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I added this to our document for calculation use cases. So, when we implement this feature we will consider your suggestions.

    However, I think the example you posted is already possible with JotForm. Under Payment Tools we have a field type called Purchase Order. This basically gives you access to all payment features without actually posting a real payment. So, you can use that to calculate total for entered values. Please give it a try.
