    How can I subtract a percentage from my calculation?

    Asked by hcs  on September 15, 2016 at 11:57 PM


    I have my form set up as I wanted but we are offering a discount of 10% off the price for Military, etc.  How can we do this without creating a coupon?  Please help!

    Hello HCS,

    My solution is to run a calculation on the discount field, instead of the form calculation field.

    Here's my "If no discount selected" calculation condition:


    And here's my "If there is a discount selected" condition calculation:


    So for the conditions for that functionality, here are the ones set:

    I also have set the calculation widget just to receive the calculated amount from the conditions, if in case you are going to use it for payment processing.

    You may also clone/copy this form in order to see how my formula is set: https://form.jotform.com/62590350018955

    If you have questions, please let us know.
