    How to calculate sub total in matrix field and add it in the email notification?

    Asked by lejforms on September 25, 2015 at 06:23 AM

     from a matrix number box i need the 2 pieces of info each filled  box represents ? A; the product that the matrix grid represents B;the number of those products the user has entered 

    what would be perfect is to have the out put ( email upon submission )  say 

    If A:3 then Print "SKU0025658" "Product B" "QTY" =A:3, or something like that. then i need to have subtotal generated of the he overall cost of the selections in the grind genereted

    I'm not quite sure if I understand you correctly. You would like to use a matrix field and conditionally show a total in the email notification?

    I believe this should be possible by following the guide below:

    1. Smart Forms using Conditional Logic 

    2. How to perform form calculation using the matrix field 

    3. You can then setup your own email notification and change the email template, you can follow this link: http://www.jotform.com/help/25-Setting-Up-Email-Notifications 


    I hope that helps.
