    Asked by Jennifer Brown on February 12, 2014 at 01:47 PM

    I am looking to calculate a number at the end of my form based on the fields that are chosen. I'd like to give each option a value. How can I do this?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    That can be implemented using various methods,

    But this depends on which questions will influence the total:

    1. Desired Monthly Earnings
    2. Selling Appointments
    3. Success Meetings
    4. Business Goals

    Or is it all of them?

    Please let us know.

    I'd like for all of them to populate a number which then creates a grand total at the bottom.

    This is not currently possible to have the calculations based on selected options with our native form calculations, but this is something that we might add in the future. I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread and escalated it to our Development Team. I can not provide any ETA at this time, but we will update this thread once we have any news.

    Custom solution might be possible with form source code / Post option, and script that will handle the calculations. I think that we can help with the custom script if this is a simple form.
