    How to set the Form Calculation widget to output 2 decimal places?

    Asked by psllcom on September 15, 2016 at 03:10 PM

    Hello Almighty JotForm Wizard, 

     

    I'm trying to have a form calculation always have 2 decimal points. I figured out how to do this with conditional calculations, but not with this particular form calculator field as it is calculated by the fields values and not through the conditional calculations. 

     

    https://form.jotform.com/62238422768158

     

    Field: Total Estimated Cost

     

    Note: Be sure to put a number in the Sqft field and check if the property is a rental or not. From there, you can select any options you want and calculations will appear.
