    Subtotal not calculating correctly.

    Asked by mamascoldbrew on June 15, 2016 at 03:13 AM


    I am trying to set up a form for our customer's to order their product for weekly delivery through.  I would like for them to be able to see the total of each item as it's added with the grand total at the bottom. There's specifically issues with calculating the total for the gallons.  The price doesn't seem to fluctuate at all based on the amount ordered, it just calculates the price of a single gallon, even if the person filing it out has marked 7 gallons.  I've attached a screenshot for you to see. 

    Is there a way to have a subtotal for the other sections even though they're set up for the totals to be manually entered instead of a dropdown menu like the gallons?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to display a sub-total when using a quantity field instead of dropdown.

    To display the subtotal based on the amount of gallons selected, you will need to input the price for each option in the payment wizard. Please see the GIF below to set it up.

    Once the price is set, the sub-total should now display correctly.

    Here's a demo so you can see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/61662237444961
