    Hi Holly! I noticed that you also commented in another thread related to budget calculations - thanks for that! I'm intrigued by the idea of having it in Requests, though. Do you see these calculations happening at the moment of Request submission, or could they be calculated at some point when the created task is opened? In the second case, it could be sufficient is something like this existed in the Workspace, but in case of the former option, it sounds like some magic would need to happen prior to that. Would love to hear what you think!

    Hey Ana,

     

    Thanks for your reply! :)

    This thread relates to having the calculation in the request form itself via some clever magic, however I think it would mean that Wrike would have to have some sort of database to pull the calculations from in my use case, though I'm sure there are other cases that may need a simpler calculation.

     

    I guess my use case would be more like an 'order form' option, which we would need to tie in with other brief elements. i.e. dates, descriptions, that would need to change automatically, so a client could "change their mind" if it was too expensive, before submitting the request, or swap and change order items and see a real time update of the cost much like a shopping basket would.

    I've mocked a (very) quick idea of what I mean below, where the cost price (right hand side) would alter depending on the number entered in the box. This would allow the user to change their mind and instead choose 6 of Asset Type 3 instead of 10, and be able to add another more expensive item instead and get the most out of their budgets.

    Hi Kunal, sorry for the delayed response. This is something the team will be thinking about during their next review of Request forms, however, I have no further information than that right now. They found the idea super interesting. I'll drop back here if and when I have more info ๐Ÿ‘

    Holly Tomkins - Your comments are a couple of years old, but fast forward to now, and I too wish Wrike request forms offered more flexibility in the way of calculations and other more advanced form building options.

    We've solved for this need in the meantime using a couple of additional paid services. For our advanced forms that require capabilities not yet available in Wrike forms, we're using Formstack with webhook integration to Wrike Integrate to generate the appropriate Wrike tasks.

    Here's a screenshot of a quick example form I set up in Formstack, based on your mockup. Updating any quantity auto-updates the associated read-only Cost field as well as the read-only Total Cost field.
