    Asked on November 20, 2015 at 05:30 AM

    Hello Lovely JotForm People! 

    Im working on a form so that clients can send me uniformed leaflet requests

    But i wanted to have a system whereby the 

    "Quantity of Leaflets"


    "Size of Leaflets"



    "Material Printed on" (IF Glossy Card THEN Add ("total" times 150%) OR (IF special THEN Add ("total" times 250%) ELSE Add 0)


    Would then output to Somewhere the user can see. 

    For example: 

    100 x A7 = £15.00
    250 x A7 = £20.00
    500 x A7 = £25.00

    100 x A6 = £20.00
    250 x A6 = £25.00
    500 x A6 = £30.00

     and so on. 


    How would I best do this do you think?

    You can set this up using conditions and form calculation widget. For more information regarding calculation and condition, you can check these articles: How to perform calculation in the form and Smart Forms Using Conditional Logic.

    We can help you set this up in your form. Just want to confirm and get some more details regarding your computation.

    If I understand correctly, this is your computation:

    sub-total = "Quantity of Leaflets" x "Size of Leaflets" 

    If  "Material Printed On" is equal to Glossy Card or Coated Glossy Paper Then

    grand total = sub-total x 1.5 (150%)

    Else If  "Material Printed On" is equal to Special Then

    grand total = sub-total x 2.5 (250%)


    You will display Grand Total in the form so user can see it. Please confirm if this is correct and also, can you give us further details regarding the price per leaflets, for example how much is the A7 per leaflets so we can compute for the total price?


    We will wait for your response.

    Wow, awesome thanks! 

    Nearly right except that the price for 

    Glossy Card is 150%


    the price for Glossy Paper is "100%"



    The prices are:

    Prices in XLS format 


    thanks so much for your help!

    thats getting there thank you - 

    i think though something is arie in the maths - 

    500 x A5 x coated glossy = 0

    500 x A5 x Glossy Card = 37.5

    500 x A5 x Special = 15


    Then if you refresh the page and go to 

    100 x A6 x coated glossy =37.5

    100 x A6 x Glossy Card = 37.5

    100 x A6 x Special = 37.5


    why is this?

    I am currently checking your form and creating the sample form with the calculation logic you need. Please give some time to further check this. I will get back to you as soon as I have the sample form.

    Here is a sample form that you can check - Please note that I have only setup the sample form for this pricing combination:

    You can add the other pricing setup by adding condition in your form, just follow the instruction provided in the demo below.


    Here is the step by step guide I made in the sample form:

    1. Add Sub-total Text box field.

    2. Add Form Calculation for Total.

    3. Setup Condition (see demo above).

    4. Add Calculation Values for the "Material Printed On" field.

    5. Setup Total field formula ("Sub-Total" field * "Material Printed On" field).


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
