    Is there a widget with automatic totaling lists?

    Asked by jedamedia on July 11, 2016 at 03:07 PM

    We are looking for a widget that keeps a running total of the dollar amounts that our customers will be entering into lists.

    For example:

     

    How many apples do you have?     4

    How many peaches do you have?   3

    How many bananas do you have?   1

    Your total fruits:                            8

     

    Is there a widget that allows us to do this?

     

     

    Thanks!

    You can use a form calculation widget to total up values in the form:

    It is also possible to assign options calculation values and use those values in calculations:
