    How can I automatically have quantities add to each other on a form?

    Asked by SAFB on August 05, 2011 at 02:08 PM

    How can I automatically have quantities add to each other from different parts of the form, to be able to have a total amount automatically updated as the user fills in previous amounts on the form (at the end of the form).

    Sorry but it can't be implemented the way you envision it. The best workaround I can think of is by using the Grading Field under the Survey Tools section


    If you know a little programming, you may also customize the form's full source code and implement your own JavaScript code to calculate the entered value in different fields on your form.

    To get your form's source embed codes:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Embed Form
    3.  Click Source

    4.  Copy the codes provided in the succeeding screen

    Hope this helps. Thank you for using Jotform!
