    Calculations with date range between day of fill out to first startdate:

    Asked by JLTransporte on December 26, 2013 at 08:42 AM

    hello JotForm,

    it is possible in JotForm to calculate the day of order to the date the customer orderes my service?-

    For example:

    the customer ordered today but he ordered my service start on the 4th day between day of order and startdate - so i want to calculate diffrent prices for this;-


    If a customer orderes shortly to the first startday of my service it is a higher price-, if he ordered me later it is a lower price - can i do this with JotForm and how?-

    i used it in a other formular but i want to go to JOTForm because it is better and more modern in style as the one i used :

    In the other formular i can range between two dates-, so there is the startdate and the enddate and a hidden datefield - this is ever the date on which the customer fill out my formular it is automaticly and ever the date of fill out the formular;- So now the formular calculate the days of fill out the formular to the first startdate;-


    if is for exampel = 7 days - it is a higher price as if is 10 days because i have much less time to manage the service for the customer!-


    Can i do the same thing with JotForm- or like this maybe over the CSS - Style type functions and how?-

    Thanks for prefering us, it is nice to know that you enjoy using our service.

    Now, let me inform you that our payment forms are not able to perform such calculation using the default payment features, it can calculate based on the quantity and price of the products your customers select. But if you have codding knowledge, you can still accomplish what you need by getting the form source code and applying some script/codding workaround. Here is how to get the source code: How to get your form source code

    Please inform us if you need further assistance with this and we will be more than glad to assist you.

    is this function from my question practible with the source code and can i caculate this function into the total price?-

    It will be possible by using the form source code. As I said before acccomplishing what you need would require to inject some code that will do the calculation - using Javascript or PHP codes. So, a proffesional could perform such workaround.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance with this.
