    How to show total and how calculator adds up this total

    Asked by narrowbridgecandles on August 19, 2016 at 04:32 AM

    Also, I am trying to integrate an appropriate widget and learn how to use it. I need some that can generate a total live in the form from a number of different fields.

    6 pairs of fields in which someone has said they want ______ # of something and want to pay _____ amount for it.

    and then the calculator adds up those totals. I figured out how to do this with the calculation wizard, but can't figure out how to use the for calculation widget- do you have any instructions on that?

    The reason I am exploring both is that I am trying to figure if one of these widgets can add up all of those tallies and then add $5 to each person's total for shipping if they have ordered any of 5 out of the 6 products and $15 for shipping if their order includes one of the products (a very large heavy one).

    I also want these calculations to be included in the automatic reply e-mail.

    I want them to submit the form and then get an e-mail that says:

    THanks so much for your order

    Order Summary (taken from the fields in the form)

    1 ___

    3 _____

    2___

    You total including shipping is _______ (taken from calculator in the form)

     

    Any guidance you can offer would be very helpful, thanks so much

    I thank you again for your understanding. 

    If I figured out what you are requesting correctly, you would like to add 15$ if your enduser order        " Large Havdallah Candles " and add 5$ if your enduser does not select " Large Havdallah Candles "  but selects any of remaining. 

    You can create any scenario like this by using Update/Calculate Condition. You can find condition details as below. 

    1. Click on "Calculation Wizard " and then Click "Condition Icon"



    2. Click "New Condition" and Choose "Update/Calculate Field"

    3. Write the first condition according to chosing of " Large Havdallah Candles ". If this field is filled by user differ than 0, shipping cost is adding as 15$ to the total. Calculation field is configured as multiplying related fields, adding them up and then adding 15$. 



    4. Write the second condition according to  not choosing of " Large Havdallah Candles ". If this field is filled by user as  0, 5$ will be added to the total. Calculation field is configured as multiplying related fields, adding them up and then adding 5$. 

     

    Now, the answer of your second question which is about showing order summary. 

    1. Click E-mail icon.

    2. Click Edit of AutoResponder



    3.  Select rows that you do not want your user to see and then Click Delete row icon and clean table.



    4. Make a single row one of them and then write the message you want to show there. To to that; select the row and then click table icon>> Cell >> Merge cells. After merging it, write that row what you want.




    5. In order to show quantities of each selection, follow below steps:

    * Click Form Fields




    * Choose related field, click and copy the ID to the related row of that field and save it. 




    Here is the screen shot of what I got after I applied all of above.



    Hope these helps you and solve your issue.
