    I need simple math calculations, relative calculations and more... Is there a way?

    Asked by posrequest on December 07, 2010 at 10:29 AM

    first of all, GREAT PRODUCT!!!!

    I need some more small enhancements ...

    1) Enter a number, enter another number, give me a result based on a formula.

         Example 1:

         Estimated Costs:




                Total: (=num1+num2+num3) or.. SUM(num1,num2,num3)

         Example 2:

         What is your average sale (in $) ? _____ (A)

         How many per week do you expect? _____ (B)

        Average increase per week, based on the user's input, will be: _____ (a x b)

    I think basic math would be great here, +,-,x,/,SUM,AVG,MIN, MAX, etc....

    If/Then's would also prove helpful. Basic "excel" style functionality, integrated with the form's conditions. If AxB>C then Show Field1.

    Which leads me to request #2:

    2) RELATIVE requirements for conditions.


       Date: __/__/__

      If Date = today then .. (existing condition, but still needs expansion)

      if Date > today + 5 days, then...

      if date1 > date2 - 1yr, then...

      if AxB>4.5 then... (from 1st example)

    3) Conditions to make other fields required, based on a calculation:

     If Date1 field is < (TODAY+3) then TextField2 becomes a required field.


    Any ideas? Thanks!!!
