    Default How to calculate form values automatically?

    Hi Russ,

    I was wondering how one might go about setting up formmail so that it can add up a bunch of form values and pass that value to the next page of a multipage form? Say the user was registering for a convention and had to make a bunch of choices regarding booth size, cost, added features, seminar fees, etc. Is there any info in this forum on calculating input values and determing where to go next based on the value range it adds up to and passing that value to the next page?

    Thanks,
    Railer

    Hi,

    You can do this in JavaScript, but then it doesn't work for people who have JS switched off in the browser.

    The easiest way to do this is with our Computation Module, which is still in Beta Test.

    Thanks Russ! Obvious question is, "when"? Or, "Can I get the beta?"

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    The Beta program has been successful so far. However, we're not accepting any more people into it.

    Production release is some months away. This means we can't offer it to you now. Sorry.

    There is a way of doing this by writing some PHP, but it's much more complicated if you're not a programmer.
