    We'd like to create a calculation in the form with a default value being used

    Asked by indiefresh on April 03, 2015 at 07:49 PM

    We have a par stocking level of 50 spoons and want to count the number of spoons to see how many we have to pull. So if we count: 25

    Par is a default of 50

    The "pull spoons" column would show '25'


    can this be done?

    I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly, but I created this form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50928358860970 for you to see if I understood it correctly or not.

    I've added a calculation widget in it and added the calculation you see below.

    If this is what you're trying to accomplish, feel free to clone the form to your account to inspect it further and make any modifications you need.

    If not, please provide more details about what you're trying to accomplish and we'll be happy to provide further assistance.
