A perfect example of the calculating form field in action is when you want to sell a few products online. If you are selling a t-shirt and a coffee mug, you can assign a value to each product using the alternate value option, such as $15 for the mug and $5 for the t-shirt. Your form will automatically give you a total depending on which product someone chooses.
Another example where you can use self-calculating fields is within a weighted survey. If you have a list of questions that lets users indicate their satisfaction using a range from 1-5, you can total the number at the end. This is great for managing customer service reviews and feedback surveys, so you can accurately calculate results.
