    Hi,

    Is there an option to have an calculation fields on the form?

    For example what I want is for browser to enter the amount of ticket & table at a set price(s) and it does the calculation for them - rather than at current situation is a seperate filed for browser to enter the total amount - some people doesn't know how to simple mathamatics.

     

    Kind regards

    Hello Wing

    I am having challenges to understand exactly your request. You probably might need to setup a paymen integrations with products showing different prices, quantity options, custom options and so on. Am I correct?

    Can you please try to explain your scenario in a more detailed manner so we can go ahead and see if this can be accomplished within our form builder?

    Hi Jeanette,

    This has been resolved by myself...

    Simple term of my question is/was is there an option to do calculation?

    My example in simple term...

    I want to create a ticket booking system:

    1) Enter the amount of ticket (filed on jotform is input field) _ _
    Ticket cost £45
    Maths: Ticket x £45 

    2) Enter the amount of tables (field in JotForm is input field) _ _
    Table cots £400
    Maths: Table x £400

    3) Total: _ _ _ _
    This field does all the calculation. 
    Maths: Ticket + Table = the SUM 

    That was my question - but like I said it has been resolved.

     

    Cheers for your reply.

    Just to let you know, our developers have recently added the calculation option.

    Calculation rule:

    Also, the calculations are available with Payment Tools. Please check the following form to see both options:

    I have a grand total field that uses the calculation function to add amounts from other numerical fields.  How do I get the grand total field to recognize my decimal.  These fields are dollar amounts.

    Here is the calculation in the grand total field:  [{registrationFees}+{amount}+{amount49}+{amount59}+{amount80}+{totalAmount90}+{amount81}+{amount82}]

    I selected 2 decimal place Decimal Places in Numerical Results.

    @Laura,

    It seems that we have a bug related to decimal points. As soon as we have any updates, we will get back to you via this thread.
