# Simple calculation with formula field

Playground and DEMO space

This is a playground and demo space for ConfiForms and ConfiDoc addons developed and supported by Vertuna LLC

Most pages provide a storage format for the demo, so you can use the free add-on from Atlassian Confluence Source Editor to import this configuration into your Confluence and see it in action

Please note, all the examples here are provided without any obligation and may or may not be incomplete or may have bugs, and we provide NO SUPPORT for these examples and demos.

Here is a simple demo to show how the formula fields can be used

We have 2 types of fields for calculations:

• Calculated - which is calculated ONLY when the record is created
• Formula - which is calculated and re-calculated each time the record is saved (created or updated)

You can use any of the functions or operations documented here: Supported math operators, formulas and functions

There is also a way to do calculations with ConfiForms Field Definition Rules

Here we have a simple form with 4 fields:

2 of number types and 3 of formula types

We have the following formulas in this form:

• ([entry.f1] + [entry.f2])
• (ROUND([entry.f1] / [entry.f2],2))
• CONCAT("Some random: ", ((RANDOM() + [entry.f1] - [entry.f2] + NOW())))

Example configuration of a formula field:

 f1 * f2 *

Stored data
