Formulas in Forms

I was trying to make a form that was sort of an order form and my formula field with the total cost of the items wasn’t on my form. I had no way to add it.

I tried on a form for another table that was similar and it didn’t work there either.

Is this not currently supported?

It is not possible to display formula fields on your form.

But Airtable does provide you with an API which you could use to link a “custom” form to your base.
On this custom form you could then display the total cost of the items etc.

By “custom” form, I mean a form built using Java, .NET, PHP etc.

You might also want to look into prefilling a form, to prefill the total cost of the items

Check this out.

I will look into prefilling. Thanks!

Is this something that might get implemented down the road?

+1 I would highly support being able to show calculated fields as well as look up fields on forms. This would really enhance the forms feature to another level.

Seems incredibly silly not to be able to show formula fields on a form. I really wish they would add this as a feature!

Throwing my vote in for this!! A big feature of many form apps is the ability to do a quiz or calculator especially outgrow which charges crazy pricing for it.

+1 for adding this feature :+1:
It would be great to be able to make a registration form where the multiple attendees could be added to the same form and be able to have a formula field at the bottom which identifies the price for the group.

This is a must! It’s the only thing I need on my form, otherwise I have to change back to another creator… Again. Any ideas when this is coming?
