This element lets you provide a short label or description in your form. It also becomes associated with Text Field when you allow the Has Lookup function which calls the Formula Builder.

To learn more about formula builder, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Before we proceed with the Formula Builder, the first thing we have to do is to add at least two columns.
Step 2: Drag a text field element for both columns.
Step 3: Set the Input Type as 'Number'.

Sample Column Configurations:

Place Holder: Value1
Input type: Number
Column 2
Place Holder: Value2
Input type: Number

Step 4: After configuring the first two columns, the next thing you have to do is to add another column and drag a Label element inside. Let us set the place holder of this column as 'Total'.
Step 5: Activate the Has Lookup function and the Formula Builder will appear.

For the Formula Builder part, we need to have at least two expressions which will call the data of the columns upon filling-up in the form. To do this, click the (+) plus sign to add another expression, then select the operator (Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide) you want to use to determine how to get the total of the columns.

Formula Builder Configuration:

Expression 1: Value 1
Operator: Subtract (-)
Expression 2: Value 2

Save the configuration you made once done, and try to see its desktop preview to test out how this actually works.

In this example, the value we enter for Value 1 = 500, and the value we enter for Value 2 = 300. Upon filling-up these fields, the system will automatically compute its total, and the output will be shown in the Total field.

ⓘ NOTE: Aside from the Text Field element, you can also configure the Formula Builder using the Dropdown and Radio Button elements. To learn more about it, click here.
