    I have a linen rental business. I rent linens etc to events such as wedding etc. i get a lot of quote request, these take a lot of my time. I will like to be able to direct my customers to my site with the link to your form where they will request the quote, i will like the quote to be e-mailed to me but on submission the customer will get a feedback tht we will get back to them with a quote in a timeframe. I also can use the form in house during consultation to create qoute for customers am meeting with.

    Hi Cathy,

    Thank you for your interest in JotForm. Currently, JotForm only supports calculations using the Payment Tool, particularly computing total cost of a purchase. Other than that, calculations like area, duration of time, length, etc are not supported in JotForm. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Just wondering if this will ever be available with jotform? 

    I'm after something similar.  I would like to be ale to allow customers to quote themselves based of variables and options selected.

    I know you can do this with other form builders.  I'd love to see it with jotform.  Maybe even as a pro option only.

    I need to be able to offer services based on time and location so it would be a matter of eg. "service option 1" for "x" amount of hours plus travel based on location or zone selected where each zone has a pre-defined cost.

    I don't think that'spossible with the tools offered currently.
