    How can I have a form that adds totals of the items at the end?

    Asked by tablemanners1406 on April 07, 2016 at 11:43 PM

    I have meal prep business and I have added drop down boxes and column for each meal up to 10 meals.  Is there something in the Jot program that I can add to the template to add up the total for all the meals ordered?

    Hello tablemanners1406,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement by adding "Form Calculation" widget in form. Here are the steps you should follow:

    #1. Add the calculation value for each option of your dropdown and checkbox questions. The following guide should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    Similarly you need to add form calculation widget to calculate sub total for all the meal option you have added.

    Hope this helps.
