    Using the calculation wizard to formulate a custom quote

    Asked by djmgmt on April 09, 2015 at 03:46 PM

    if you notice on my form on the first page it asks the client to provide us with the length and width of their yard.  We are trying to use these submissions to calculate a custom quote on page 3, but Im unsure how to use the calculation wizard to accomplish this? Help!

    You can assign value to the dimensions so that you can use them in the Calculation.

    user guide: -How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value



    then you can now create custom calculation of numbers/amount base on the dimensions selected


    it works like this



    You can test my form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50986855325972

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need more assistance.

    I apologize, my previous screenshot was incomplete.

    You should also assigned a default zero(0.00) for the none selected item


    I corrected this on a cloned form of yours http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50988747279982?

    it calculates correctly.



    You can also clone my test form http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50988747279982? if you want to check it on your Form Builder
