    Perform calculation based on user input and display the result

    Asked by snicholson on March 30, 2016 at 03:26 PM

    I want to process calculations based on the user's choices/input and display them in the form as a "table" or results.  How can I do this?

    You can use Form Calculation Widget to do that. Simply add the Widget to your form and perform the calculation by adding, multiply or divide the fields between them or with other values


    You can view a calculation demo here - https://form.jotform.com/60565712627963


    Feel free to contact us if you need additional assistance.

    That works-thanks!

    I would like to present the results from the calculations in a table format ( that is read only to users.  Can you give advice on how to do that?

    Not quite sure if I am visualizing it correctly. May we know what kind or table or how you would like it to be presented in a table? If you can share a screenshot of what you would like to display, that would help. Would you like to present it in the live form? Or on a separate link with all the other calculations from the other submissions?

    So far, if you would like to present the calculations on all of your submissions in a table or grid list, that is possible by creating an HTML Table Listing report or a Grid Listing Report. You can check them here: https://www.jotform.com/help/326-How-To-Create-Form-Reports-in-JotForm 

    You can display the HTML table listing report in your website using the embed code or by sharing the report link.

    We'll wait for your response.
