How to add calculated fields and formulas to your PDF

With signNow you can automate business calculations by adding calculated fields to a document using formulas that calculate values from text and dropdown fields. Calculations include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and parentheses.

Use Calculated fields for product order forms, donation forms, expense reimbursements, event registration forms and others.

To get started, open your document in the signNow editor. Place a Text field or Dropdown field anywhere on the document.

Click Validation type to specify the format of the field. Note that you can choose only specific field validators which are marked with a calculator.

Next, click Label to name the field and click Unique Field Name to give your field a unique ID that will be used in the formula. The name and the field ID may be identical.

In the same way, customize a Dropdown field. Enter the values you`d like to appear in the dropdown field. Note that you can only enter numbers. Also, ensure that the Add "Other" Option checkbox is disabled. Press ENTER to type each value on a new line. Click Label to name the Dropdown field, then click Unique Field Name to give your field a unique ID that will be used in the formula.

When you`ve finished with fillable fields, click the Calculated field and enter your formula in the pop up window. The formula may contain unique field names and numbers. Add curly brackets to enter the unique name of the fields then add numbers without brackets.

Formulas can be calculated via addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You can also round the value of the field to a specific amount of decimal places.

Just like the Text and Dropdown fields, a Calculated field must have a name. To name the field, click Label, then click Unique Field Name and type a unique field ID.

You can also attach a payment request to the Calculated field. Click the Calculated Field and tick the Make this payment field checkbox, then click Ok. Your calculated field will be available in a payment request form.

If you`d like your document to be signed, drag and drop a Signature field where desired. Once you`ve finished editing your document, click Done.

The recipient can`t fill in the Calculated field manually. After all required fields are completed the result will automatically appear in the Calculated field.
