    Edit submission: Calculation not updating

    Asked by debatnl on March 06, 2016 at 11:13 AM


    When we try to use the edit submission link so people can edit their submission, we have found out that the form does not automatically update any calculations that are being made when certain values are being edited. Can you help me out on that? Thanks a lot.

    Hello Sharon,

    Calculation should also update accordingly when you made changes on the field values that are part of the calculation.

    So far, I can't reproduce this problem on a test form.

    Example: https://www.jotform.com/edit/333096321040153263

    If it's not recalculating the value in your form, please check and review your calculation if there's no conflict as well as your condition. If you need further help, please let us know which specific fields in your form that is not updating the value on edit mode so we can further investigate.
