    Is there a way you can get a Total box to add up the values in other boxes?

    You may use a Grading field instead if your form will be asking for values that will be totaled. It can be found under the Survey Tools section:

    This is the only tool available that has a calculation feature. There have been requests in the past for a calculation feature for textboxes and whatnots, and I think it has already been added to our feature request list.

    Sadly, we cannot give a specific time for completion or even approval, since we do not have access to our development team's scheduleing and priority list.

    We will let you know once such a feature is implemented. Thank you for using JotForm!
