    Can I make this form with Jotform?

    Asked by melodicsounds on February 02, 2016 at 10:04 PM

    We want to make a form exactly the same as this: https://www.homework-desk.com/order/ can you enter this link and check the form inside there? What we want is that depending on each selection the options that come next will change depending on the selection of the prior drop down menu. We also want to know if you have that function to display price depending on the atributions  and options you've choosed in the form?


    In few words we want to do exactly the same as that form. Is it possible?

    I believe the form you have linked is possible to recreate with jotform. Here are several links to help you get started.

    I see the calculation works what I am looking for, but if you can see the form I am looking to recreate... the price changes depending on drop downs menus without numeri values... example if you choose 10 days the price is 20 bucks.. but if you choose 3 hours the price goes to 200 bucks. Thats what I am trying to recreate... probably it works with your system but I will need to hide somehow the numeri value... or any other solution on how to achieve this?

    I believe the one part you are missing is assigning calculation values to your options:


    Assign your options calculation values, then use those variables in your calculations instead of field update conditions.

    Hi David, I saw the tutorial but I don't see how to asign a calculation value instead of a field update value...


    Right what I've understood is that the wizard takes the numeric value that is in the option in the field right? So if my field options are 1,2,3,4,5,6 or 10 hours 8 hours 6 hours 4 hours.. it will take does numbers... My problem is that I need my calculation to depend on what the user chooses. For example typeform (another form builder) has: If user chooses value X adds X to variable x. How can I recreate this David?

    I want to achieve if he chooses 10 hours in field "para cuando lo necesitas" that Calculation wizard ads X value to any variable or to the total. and also if he chooses 10 hours + 5 pages in "número de páginas"question, it adds more... is it possible with jotform¿

    I managed to recreate this with logic conditions with INSERT option. Thanks. 


    Another question please:


    I need a logic condition that if user choose x option hiden x option from x field. So if they choose 10 hours they can choose all options from "número de paginas" but if they choose 6 hours they can only choose some options from "numero de paginas" is it possible?

    Another thing can you please visit my preview:  https://form.jotform.com/60328003160945 choose "Ensayo" option in tipo de tarea please. My problem is that when you are in "interlineado" it opens 2 kind of drop downs... if you choose "sencillo" it opens X dropdown and if you choose "doble" it opens Y dropdown... so right now if you choose Sencillo + Option in the drop down that appears (número de páginas) it works fine and INSERTS the correspondant value, BUT, if you go back to interlineado and change to option "doble" this will enable dropdown Y (número de páginas) BUT won't INSERT the updated value.... it does changes from drop down depending on what you choose on "interlineado" BUT it doesn't updates the INSERT value on "Subtotal" understand? Help?

    Another one:


    Right now the INSERT is working but its not ADDING it to the "Subtotal field"... so it rewrites with each new INSERT option but I need to add it something like if option X is equal to 10 Do calculate value "Subtotal + 50" and then in other option if you choose X is equal to 2 hours do caculcuate value "Subtotal + 350" so at the end Subtotal = 400.. How to achieve this?

    My apologies, I linked the wrong guide, here is how to assign calculation values to your options:


    Once you assign calculation values to your options, you can then use the field in your calculation, instead of using update conditions.
