    Hi Julius,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Community! Check out this article about how to set up Calculation fields in GoCanvas -- the very first example under "Calculating Number fields" is an example of setting up a Total field. For your convenience, I've copied and pasted this step-by-step section below. If this doesn't help, feel free to share a few more details on what you're hoping to accomplish with calculations and we'll be happy to help.

    Calculating Number fields

    To create a "Total" Calculation field, follow these steps:

    1. Launch the GoCanvas App Builder.
    2. Drag a Number field from the field palette into your App and label it "Quantity".
    3. Drag another Number field into your App (or copy the previous field) and label it "Unit Price". In the Unit Price field's Field Settings, change the Style to Currency.
    4. Drag a Calculation field from the field palette into your App and label it "Total". In the Total field's Field Settings, change the style to Currency.
    5. Under the Calculation header, select Create Calculation.
    6. Select Quantity for Operator 1.
    7. Select the Multiplication icon. 
    8. Select Unit Price for Operator 2, then click Done.


    That's it! The Total field will automatically multiply the Quantity and Unit Price field for you. 

    You can add as many fields as necessary to achieve your end result. Simply click New Operator to add more fields and operators to the calculation. 

    All the best,
