    How to create a calculation on form with specific rules to be followed

    Asked by Michael on April 07, 2015 at 09:12 AM

    Hi. I am creating my 1st Jotform to replace one I currently use in Forms Central. I want to set up "my products" with two groups of photo options ... a "standard" range and an "optional" range.

    Within these groups i want to create a couple of rules:

    1. where at least one of the "standard" package range must be purchased, and

    2. optional" products are only displayed if one or more "standard" products are selected.

    I cant figure out how to do this ...

    My Jotform is http://www.jotform.com//?formID=50963012694860

    My form central form is listed below

    You can create the same layout by using checkboxes and passing the value to Form Calculation to calculate the total.

    To do that you would need to take a look at the following guides:

    How to Assign Calculation Value

    How to perform calculation in the form?

    Next to this you will need a few conditions. You can see more about them here:

    Hide or Show Multiple Fields at Once


    Now, there is another alternative and that is to import all of your data from the Adobe to JotForm.

    Doing this is quite simple and requires you only to make a selection of what you would like to have imported.

    To see more, please take a look at the following pages:

    Do let us know if you have any questions with either and we would be happy to assist.
