    Thanks for asking. You would insert the currency symbol before the formula and then click Show Advanced Options. Please see the screenshot below:

    The solution was used in this jotform.

    If you need further explanation, we'd be happy to provide it.

    Could you please let us know which form have the calculation widget included? I've checked all your forms but, unfortunately, was unable to find the widget in any of them.

    You may also clone the demo form provided by @abajan in case you want to test it further.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
    Thank you.

    Thank you for providing more information.

    I've made a cloned version of your form to make some tests, you can find it here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50186947966977

    I'm assuming that the values in the calculation widget should be taken depending on the selected option(s) in the checkboxes. If this is correct then you need to populate the Calculation Values field which you can see by right-clicking each checkbox field and selecting Properties.

    Each numeric value corresponds to the selected option. For example, in the image below Option 1 would have a price of 10, Option 2 would have a price of 15 and Option 3 would have a price of 20

    Once this is done then you need to create the operation that should be performed in the calculation widget. For example, adding the prices for all selected checkboxes like in the picture below.

    And that's it. You can also clone the demo form to your account if you want to.

    Let us know if this helps.
    Thank you.
