    How can I add a fee to my calculation field based on conditional logic?

    Asked by EnergyExpress on May 13, 2015 at 04:30 PM

    I have created a form and want to add a $7.00 parking fee based on an individual's parking preference.  I have tried to use required condition, I have tried to make the default answer selected, and I have tried to add to the calculation field through conditions.  I am clearly missing something.  Is there a easy way to accomplish this task? This seems like it should be simple. I cannot get the default on the parking field to hold.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The Parking Fee option is affected by 'Clear a field on hide' option on your form.

    You might consider using calculation values instead.

    You might also need to disable Autofill option on form.

    And change selected Quantity to 1 to get instant calculations.

    If you need any further assistance on this, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
