    Is there a way to add entries in a configurable list?

    Asked by rlzolinas on May 06, 2015 at 11:32 AM

    I'm working on a report of business expense form. It requires the user to add entries for multiple days for parking, etc. A configurable list is ideal, but I would like the form to keep a running total of prices that are entered. Is this possible? The only other way that I can think to do this is using the form calculation option. Not sure if this would work within the configurable list widget? Thanks in advance!

    This is the lengthy draft of what I am working on: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51254320036947 I was just hoping for an easier way.

    I attached a screenshot of the original paper form that I am trying to convert.

    Unfortunately, there is currently no way you can calculate the values in the configurable list widget using our calculation widget.

    A workaround would be to use our Spreadsheet Widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/spreadsheet or use an individual input boxes. 

    Thanks

    Thanks, the spreadsheet is not ideal for the amount of information that needs to go on this sheet. I'll continue to use individual input boxes.
