    Wow - your system is hard to use - and the advice that you give presumes that I understand code etc.

    I need to do a very simple form and I just can't get it right -

    I have set the form up - and I need it to do the following

    1 - The first five sliders are from 0 - 10 ( with decimal intervals - 1.1,1.2,1.3 etc )

    2 - Then multiply the result by 2

    3 - The sixth slider is 0 - 10 ( with half decimal intervals - 0,0.5,1,1.5 )

    4 - minus this score from the previous

    5 - Give the total


    I tried using the calculable slider widget and I could not get the text to fit in it properly and I was told to try individual sliders - the design looks good but now I can't set the values etc - they don't seem to change so I am obviously doing it incorrectly. I really like the concept of jotform but you need to work on making it more user friendly for people like me with no code experience.

    Only your first slider settings aren't configured correctly. Your min and max value are 0. You should set it to 0 and 10 respectively. Also, you cannot set a decimal value for the numeric Slider widget. 

    As for the calculation, you should add a calculation widget and put the fields in the equation.

    You can do it like this:

    I've cloned your form and made the changes. Check it here:

    If you would like to use the calculable slider widget, you should be able to get the total by configuring the calculation as:
