    Form Calculation Widget Math Function Error

    Asked by myprintingpal on July 01, 2014 at 09:24 AM

    I'm trying to use your form calculation widget but none of the 'math functions' (ie ceil function) seem to be working correctly?  

    I enter the calculation (which works fine) and then press 'finish' (still fine) but when I go back onto the calculation the math function (in my case the 'ceil' function) changes to plain text which causes the calculation not to work?

    Hello myprintingpal,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    I did check your form and I am able to replicate the issue you are having. It seems the "ceil()" function is not being recognized and it is taking it as a normal text.

    I am reporting this to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as this issue is fixed.

    Thank you!
