1.6.4 Beta 1 - Feedback

  1. Fika

    I am trying to use the new calculations in this beta to do some simple stuff . I have my total including tax and from that i want to calculate the tax amount and sub-total (Working backwards)

    Here is my feedback / Mac 10.7 / FF / Chrome

    My working scenario is

    * Products (user can pick a multiple of products which gives a price)
    * Sub-Total
    * Tax
    * Total

    The formulas I am using are very simple

    * Tax Calculation = Total / 5 (as my tax rate is 25%)
    * Sub-Total Calculation = Total - Tax

    * None of the fields update dynamically. For example, when I choose a product, the total updates but the tax, nor the subtotal update. This is the biggest problem as the calculations should happen on the fly otherwise this is useless.

    * When I refresh (FF Only) the tax field updates correctly, but not sub-total, see next point

    * The sub-total field above never updates. Not sure if it is because it is using a field (Tax) in it's own calculation which is doing calculations as well.

    * On chrome the field has a drop down arrow, on FF not

    * On default, maybe the fields should be populated with zero. Maybe that is possible in the advanced tab for the number field? have not tried it.

    Hope this helps

  2. " Tax Calculation = Total / 5 (as my tax rate is 25%)"

    that should be /4 if your tax rate is 25%

    the rest, not sure, but as iam looking to use this function, live calculation are essential. I'm sure GF has a fix, or your formulas are wrong

    might want to check your own maths Mark...The total / 5 is getting my tax correct rate of 25%..20% of the total = 25% tax rate on product ;)

    waiting on some input from the GF team...
