The ability to run more sophisticated math equations

Before Prontoforms our company used a fillable pdf that had the ability to have advanced calculations through Smiplfied Field notation or Custom Calculation Scripts, I believe this is what JavaScrip is. This script was created using adobe pro form builder. I have the calculation in javascript and excel but at this point, after working with your Implementation Specialist it doesn't seem possible at this time. 

I can send additional documentation if needed.

    Hi Josh,

    Thanks for submitting this.    If you could give us examples of what kind of math you're looking to support, I can better understand your requirements.

    Can I email you the excel document with all the formulas?

    Example.

    =B21*((1-((0.0035666*B3)/528))^5.2553)*(528/(B6+460))

    Hi Josh,

    I've spoken with our professional services team, who were able to share your Excel sheet with me.

    To me, that looks like a formula we can support today.

    Our calculation builder supports:

    • Referencing statics numbers, or the answers to previous questions
    • Brackets, including nested brackets
    • The following operators: +, - , *, /, ^

    If you're finding that's not the case, or I'm missing a nuance (I'm no math whiz, personally!), let me know and we'll continue this over email (in that case, I'll reach out to you).
