    Calculate price with time duration (amount of hours)

    Asked by ainsley2014 on November 17, 2014 at 07:21 PM

    Hello,

    I am currently in the development of a form that allows users to request an errand appointment by picking out the time and date requested by the client. What I would like to accomplish in the form is an integration where the time slots are calculated into a summed up price. In it's simplest terms when a client requests the hours for their errand I would like the form to calculate a total price for the amount of time specified. I also need the price to be connected with the paypal widget in some form. This way the client knows exactly how much the service will be and can purchase it as well. I'm wondering there may be a widget that can help me with this situation. I would appreciate any kind of help as soon as possible.

    Here is a link to the current form http://form.jotform.us/form/42955833426159

    Thank you kindly.

    I was trying to test the feature Time Duration which is available on Time field. This feature calculates the time duration, but as I tested it unfortunately calculations with other fields cannot be performed with the calculated duration result.

    To display the time duration, please enable the option Time Duration from the Time properties.

    which will be displayed as below.

     

    I've also tried with date difference in which it didn't work for us. Let me forward this as a feature request to our next level support for consideration to see if it can be implemented. There is no ETA at the moment. However, if there is any progress you will be updated through this thread.
