    Hi,

    I need to create a savings calculator, and was wondering if I can set it up so that the results show once the user hits a submit button, not automatically as they enter the numbers. I am trying to also save the user's contact info on an email field. Any ideas? The URL for the form is: http://mediatechplus.com/ltcalc/

     

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Would you mind telling us a bit more details?

    I presume based on what you have mentioned that you would like to have the calculations done on thank you page instead of on the jotform.

    If that is the case, then I would suggest hiding the Form Calculation widgets on your jotform that do these calculations and then show their results on the thank you message. Since you can not do any calculations on the thank you page, this is a great way to do the calculations and show the values - as if they were calculated at the thank you messages.

    I am however not quite sure that you mean by this next line?

    I am trying to also save the user's contact info on an email field. Any ideas?

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Hi Ben,

    I played around with it a little more, and I found the "hide" feature after. Thanks for pointing it out. I think I got it working as needed for now.
