    How can I create a calculated conditional form for car servicing?

    Asked by richbrooks on April 09, 2014 at 08:21 AM

    Hello there,

    I am in the process of building out a website for my automotive client, they want a form which displays 1 price for the servicing of there land rover but it is based on 5 or 6 options they have to select from which determines which price is fed back to them, for example:

     

    Land Rover Servicing

    Select Land Rover type:
    Sport
    Freelander
    Range Rover
    Discovery 

    Select Engine size:
    2.6
    3.6
    4.2
    4.4
    4.7 

    Select type of engine:
    Petrol or Diesel

    Does your Land Rover have ACE
    Yes
    No

    Does your Land Rover have Locking Diff
    Yes
    No 

    Service Cost = £-------

     

    So the price would vary depending what they have selected, we do have a series of price values for each available option.

    I need to know what type of form this would be? Can I edit it as the price options would change for a ford vehicle?

    Is there a cost involved for this?

    No there is no cost for this unless you go over the free plan limit on your form for the month then our system will lock your account until you either upgrade or wait for the monthly reset. And yes the forms are editable so you can change them as you see fit but it all depends on how you build it.

    I think this should be possible using a few fields to create the car cost total for your sum. You would need to use calculated conditional logic to make it display the right answer based on choices made. You can refer to this guide https://www.jotform.com/help/267-Form-Calculation-Math-Function-Reference for a better understanding of our calculation tool.

    I've made a starting point form for you to kinda get the idea of where I'm going with this to help give you suggestions for it. Feel free to clone and modify it more from there if you want.

     

    Example:  -  Pick all of the first answers in each dropdown and watch what happens.
