    Asked on April 03, 2014 at 02:55 AM


    I’ve designed a unique and personalised wedding planner for my DJ business and have also written a wedding reception book based around planner that is 55 chapters and 28,000 words. I call it Bookform lol. I will also be including supporting photos and Youtube links within my Bookform

    I want to combine my book and the form together, which each chapter finishing with a series of relevant questions from my form.

    Here is my form:

    There are a list of features and calculations I will be using (that Jotform has J) making my bookform very dynamic in some areas.

    Does anyone have any helps, tips, tricks, examples they could share inregards to building my bookform so I’m not reinventing the wheel (too much)?


    Any insight and advice would be greatly appreciated J

    Thank you for using Jotform.

    I would begin by introducing our form calculation widget by using this guide

    Then, you can browse some sample calculation forms from our template gallery found here.

    Our recently introduced conditional calculations would also be a great edition to your form - as shown here

    I know that I've thrown a lot of guiides your way - sorry about that - therefore, here is what I would suggest:

    1. List all the questions about each of the calculations you have in mind for your form

    2. For each of those questions - open a new support thread - and you will recieve efficient and practical support on how you can perform those calculations -and in some cases - create some demo's for you...

    Looking forward to your response.
