    Stuck with car loan calculator form

    Asked by afckredieten on November 24, 2015 at 11:33 AM


    This is not the first time i mailed for this. But i can't get it working.

    I need to make some changes to this form https://form.jotformeu.com/53194372527358

    The form / calculator works. But apparently due to the fact the client didn't tell me everything i forgot some important things


    For new cars the max duration is 84 months, so there is one duration field which has the possibility to go to 120 months, please correct youre choice tot 84 months

    here i only need to have a text saying that, and that the 120 months is only for caravans, mobilhomes etc. Ok that i can do. 

    But for the 2 duration fields 24-84 and 24-120 months i have a problem

    For cars between 3 and 5 years (one of the choices) and cars older than 5 years the limitation is 60 months

    I have two possibility's

    1. i work with a text saying that the limit is 60 and that they need to change theire duration

    2. or i make 1 new duration only for those 2 car ages, becouse the durations i need for new cars?

    Can you help me? normally i already provided the excel sheets with all the info, but in attach you find this again

    If I understood you correctly you want that Duration 24-60 field is shown if users select option "between 3 and 5 years" or "older than 5 years".

    I think that this could be achieved by adding additional dropdown field and than setting condition to show that field if mentioned options is selected, regardless of loan amount. However I think that in this case you would need to change some other conditions as well.

    Or you can also add additional text fields to your form that with warning message that will be shown if options "between 3 and 5 years" or "older than 5 years" are selected. Something like this.


    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
