    Creating a Sum Total

    Asked by shadowcliff on October 30, 2015 at 02:24 PM



    I feel like I've done this before but with the new layout I can't find a way to create one place to show a sum total of all previous selections. My form is a scholarship contribution form, designed to get donors to contribute money to certain scholarship opportunities. I had hoped to allow people to choose from a list of options and see their grand total at the bottom. They'll still need to enter that into the PayPal total, but at least they get one grand total.

    How can I do that? Here's the form: https://form.jotform.com/53025024904950
