We have just implemented this as a new feature allowing the use of Calculations based on specific conditions.
To learn more about this, here’s my test form. We’ll use it as a reference for the steps mentioned below.
- On Form Builder, go to Settings > Conditions.
- Then select the Update/Calculate Field option.
- First, set up the IF statement – this is the rule that needs to be met for the conditional logic to trigger its action. Then, set up the DO statement to Calculate a field’s value.
Below is a screenshot of where we can do a calculation using the input from other fields. In my case, I will add the textboxes Number 1 and Number 2 then output it on a textbox named Total. This conditional action will happen only IF textbox Number 1Is Filled out. You can see this on my test form.
You can add the other form fields by clicking the Add Field button. Make sure that the fields are set to 0-9, meaning their value is numeric. You can also insert your own formula here, you can see the number pad on the right side and the math functions there.
After clicking the Save button, this is how it looks like in my conditions list.
Here’s how it looks like in the live form preview:
Now how to insert static text? Simply type the text in the textarea field under the DO statement. Set the target field where you want to output the text. In my case, this conditional action happens when the specific drop-down field in my form is set to “Yes”. Notice that the background color is different from a numeric input. It should have a light brown background (for texts) instead of black (for numbers).
This is how it looks like in my conditions list:

Congratulations! You’re now able to insert static text or perform your own calculations using Conditional Logic.
