How does Calculoid work?

 

 

General

Calculoid is a cloud-based platform. Once you have an account with us, you can start creating your calculators. Calculoid has an editor which allows setting a calculator with no coding. All your calculators are kept under your account. To manage them you need to open 'My calculators' page. Once your calculator is ready, you can embed it on your web with HTML or iFrame. The codes are autogenerated and presented in the 'Publish' tab. To embed your calculator simply copy one of the codes and paste it on your web. After embedding the calculator you have all the statistics on your calculator's page. To use Calculoid in full, integrate your calculator with your CRM system to gain leads or with any other application available on Zapier.

 

 

For developers

Calculoid.com is plain static JavaScript web application which uses AngularJS framework to run. It is a heavyweight application compared to embed app whose main goal is to be a public library for calculators and powerful calculator editor. For more information about Calculoid, please read "How does Calculoid work?".

How to prefill data in the calculator

There are two ways how to prefill data in the calculator, by URL query string or in ng-init attribute in the <div> element.

By ng-init atribute

Prefill configuration is inserted in ng-init – init() function as new object values (example: values:{}). To set individual values you have to add key with ID of field and his value . (example: values:{ F12345 : 'example value'} – this example configuration will prefill field ID F12345 with 'example value'). So the embed code itself will look like this:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://embed2.calculoid.com/styles/main.css" />
<script src="http://embed2.calculoid.com/scripts/combined.min.js"></script>
<div ng-app="calculoid" ng-controller="CalculoidMainCtrl" ng-init="init({calcId:12345,apiKey:'xxxxxxxxx', values:{ F12345 : 'example value'} })" ng-include="load()"></div>

It is possible to prefill email, slider, radiobox, text, textarea, payment and checkbox fields.

If the payment field is used in your calculator, there is a possibility to prefill all billing information (except custom checkboxes) by adding new object billing into values{} (example: values: {billing: { } }).

Billing inf. to prefill:

address, city, companyName, country, email, firstname, lastname, oac, phone, vatid, zip

Example:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://embed2.calculoid.com/styles/main.css" />
<script src="http://embed2.calculoid.com/scripts/combined.min.js"></script>
<div ng-app="calculoid" ng-controller="CalculoidMainCtrl" ng-init="init({calcId:12345,apiKey:'xxxxxxxxx', values:{ F12345 : 'example value', billing:{address:‘Example address‘, city:‘Example city‘, country:‘US‘, zip:‘111111‘, email:‘This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.‘, firstname:‘John‘, lastname:‘Doe‘, oac:true, phone:‘+111123456789‘, companyName:‘Company name‘, vatid:‘GBxxxxxxxx‘} })" ng-include="load()"></div>

oac = Order as Company checkbox (can be only true or false)

By URL query string

Data are inserted by adding query parameters in format: field_id=prefilled_value

Example:

http://www.your.domain/index.html?F12345=example%20text&F12346=another%20example%20text

(Note: data have to be URL encoded, more information)

Variables usable in formula

  • FX - field value (except email, payment and HTML field) *replace FX with the field ID. Example: F3456
  • BillingFirstname - first name from payment billing information
  • BillingLastname - last name from payment billing information
  • BillingAddress - address from payment billing information
  • BillingCity - city from payment billing information
  • BillingCountry - country from payment billing information
  • BillingZip - zip code from payment billing information
  • BillingCompanyName - company name from payment billing information

  • BillingValidViesVatID - if is VAT ID validation by VIES enabled this var. returns 1 when validation is successful, otherwise 0
  • PaymentType - returns which payment type is selected (paypal = 1, stripe = 2, invoice = 3)

Available variables for integrations and emails

Some types of fields (such as Send Results or Payments) use e-mail templates. In the templates, these variables will be replaced by actual data before the e-mail is sent. The same applies for integrations.

  • {FX:value} - single field value *replace FX with the field ID. Example: F3456
  • {FX:name} - single field name *replace FX with the field ID. Example: F3456
  • {FX:hint} - single field description *replace FX with the field ID. Example: F3456
  • {FX:prefix} - single field text before value *replace FX with the field ID. Example: F3456
  • {FX:postfix} - single field text after value *replace FX with the field ID. Example: F3456
  • {calculatorName} - calculator name
  • {fields} - list of fields
  • {sourceUrl} - calculator URL
  • {description} - calculator description
  • {userName} - author account name
  • {email} - email address from Email or Payment field
  • {price} - price from Payment field
  • {currency} - currency of Payment field
  • {status} - pament status
  • {billing:firstname} - first name from payment billing information
  • {billing:lastname} - last name from payment billing information
  • {billing:address} - address from payment billing information
  • {billing:city} - city from payment billing information
  • {billing:country} - country from payment billing information

Fields settings

 

SLIDER - VARIABLE FIELD, USERS DEFINE THE VALUE OF THE VARIABLE VIA SLIDING THE POINTER ON THE BAR.

The Slider field is a great option if you need to have predefined max and min values for an input field. For example, if you want to let a user select a percentage, you know that the min value is 0 and the max value is 100%. The slider is a nice interactive element for the whole calculator since it allows the user to drag&drop the pointer or select a value by just a click or touch. This field is optimized for mobile as well. Additional input option allows to type in particular number if required. With Calculoid slider, you can also set particular options to choose from. Such a setting is very useful when the user should pick only predefined numbers or options.

Slider settings:

Calculoid.com

  • Min Value: The minimal value a user can select. 0 by default.
  • Max Value: The maximal value a user can select. 100 by default.
  • Step: The step the slider can select. For example, if you have a slider from 0 to 1.000.000, you can let a user select only full thousands by selecting the step to be 1000. 1 by default.
  • Default Value: The default value a user will see when the calculator loads for the first time.
  • Scale: The slider field can display a scale below the slider. Fill in the scale values separated by comma character. For example: 25,50,75. If you want to display some labels instead of the actual numbers, add the labels like this: 25: low,50: medium:75: high.
  • Show scale values: Yes/No setting to show or hide the scale values.
  • Additional input: Add a small box next to the slider where the final user can type in the number needed.
  • Hide Selection Bar: Yes/No setting to show on the scale selected part.
  • Selection Bar Gradient: Design setting for the scale color.
  • Logarithmic scale: Available only if Min value is more then 0. Change the space given for each section on the slider.
  • Force Decimal Places: Yes/No setting.
  • Before scale text: A text presented before the value on the scale.
  • After scale text: A text presented after the value on the scale.

Options - alternative way to set the slider:

  • New option: Adds a predefined option to the slider. Add more options to create sldier with predefined options only.

Calculoid uses this open-source library for sliders.

 

 

INPUT FIELD - VARIABLE FIELD, USERS INSERT VARIABLE VALUE MANUALLY INTO THE TEXT FIELD.

Input Field Config:

Calculoid.com

  • Default Value - A value pre-filled by default, such as text string or number
  • Is Required? - Yes/No - Select whether the field must be filled in
  • Field type - Text/Number/Email/Phone/Other
  • Force String - Yes/No - Any input entered into the field will be of string data type, including numbers, to prevent an automatic change of formatting when it is undesirable (such as for bank account numbers, personal identification numbers, social security numbers, etc.)

For more information about Text Field, please read:

 

RADIO BOX - VARIABLE FIELD, USERS SELECT ONE VALUE/OPTION FROM THE DEFINED LIST.

Options:

  • New Option - add a new option to select
  • Option Name - a name of the option
  • Option Value - a hidden value of the option, such as price (should be numerical and unique for each option)

Radio field config:

  • Default Value - a value pre-selected by default when the calculator is loaded (the option having this value will be pre-selected)
  • Columns - a number of columns to show the options in

FORMULA - RESULT FIELD, THE ADMINISTRATOR DEFINE HOW THE VARIABLES ARE CALCULATED. USERS SEE THE RESULT.

Calculoid.com

A formula is an algorithm that derives its value from other fields, expressions, or values. Formulas can help you automatically calculate the value of a field based on other fields.

Value variables:

If you've ever used Google Spreadsheet or MS Excel, you should be familiar with variables in the formula. In Calculoid formula, there aren't used rows and columns for identification of a value (because there aren't any), but each field has its unique identifier (for example F123). You will use these field IDs instead of actual values. For example, I want to create this formula: (A + B) * 45 / C So I create field A, B and C. Doesn't matter what type of the field it is. Each field has its unique ID. Let's say field A has ID F123, field B has ID F124 and field C has ID F135. Final formula will be like this: (F123 + F124) * 45 / F135

Expression Syntax:

The parser accepts a pretty basic grammar. Operators have the normal precedence — f(x,y,z) (function calls), ^ (exponentiation), *, /, and % (multiplication, division, and remainder), and finally +, -, and || (addition, subtraction, and string concatenation) — and bind from left to right (yes, even exponentiation… it’s simpler that way). There’s also a “,” (comma) operator that concatenates values into an array. It’s mostly useful for passing arguments to functions since it doesn't always behave as you would think with regards to multi-dimensional arrays. If the left value is an array, it pushes the right value onto the end of the array, otherwise, it creates a new array “[left, right]“. This makes it impossible to create an array with another array as it’s the first element. Inside the first argument of the if function can be used these operators to compare expressions:

  • == Equal
  • != Not equal
  • > Greater than
  • >= Greater or equal than
  • < Less than
  • <= Less or equal than
  • and Logical AND operator
  • or Logical OR operator

Example of if function: if(1 and 2 <= 4, 2, 0) + 2 = 4

Function operators:

The parser has several built-in “functions” that are actually operators. The only difference from an outside point of view, is that they cannot be called with multiple arguments and they are evaluated by the simplify method if their arguments are constant.

  • sin(x) Sine of x (x is in radians).
  • cos(x) Cosine of x (x is in radians).
  • tan(x) Tangent of x (x is… well, you know).
  • asin(x) Arc sine of x (in radians).
  • acos(x) Arc cosine of x (in radians).
  • atan(x) Arc tangent of x (in radians).
  • sqrt(x) Square root of x. Result is NaN (Not a Number) if x is negative.
  • log(x) Natural logarithm of x (not base-10). It’s log instead of ln because that’s what JavaScript calls it.
  • abs(x) Absolute value (magnatude) of x.
  • ceil(x) Ceiling of x — the smallest integer that’s >= x.
  • floor(x) Floor of x — the largest integer that’s <= x.
  • round(x, n)) X, rounded to the nearest integer or to n decimal places, using “gradeschool rounding”.
  • exp(x) ex (exponential/antilogarithm function with base e).
  • Pi - adds 3.14159265359
  • match (x,y) - compares two numbers or texts, returns 'true' if x and y match, returns 'false' if x and y don't match. For integers: match (x,y). For texts: match ('x','y')
  • random(n) Get a random number in the range [0, n). If n is zero, or not provided, it defaults to 1.
  • fac(n) n! (factorial of n: “n * (n-1) * (n-2) * … * 2 * 1″).
  • min(a,b,…) Get the smallest (“minimum”) number in the list.
  • max(a,b,…) Get the largest (“maximum”) number in the list.
  • pyt(a, b) Pythagorean function, i.e. the c in “c2 = a2 + b2“.
  • pow(x, y) xy. This is exactly the same as “x^y”. It’s just provided since it’s in the Math object from JavaScript.
  • atan2(y, x) arc tangent of x/y. i.e. the angle between (0, 0) and (x, y) in radians.
  • if(c, a, b) The condition function where c is condition, a is result if c is true, b is result if c is false.
  • len(n) The character length of n. i.e. len(123) = 3.
  • lookup (lookup-value, lookup-column-id, result-column-id, table-id) - search a value in defined column in a CSV table uploaded and returns a value from result column defined. Search only for number, returns numbers and texts.
  • add - combine text and number into one string (text). Example: add ('text', 10), result: text10.
  • formatNumber(number, length of decimal,'decimal delimiter', 'thousand delimiter') - format number as defined.
  • newDate(year,month,days) - returns date in standard format based on variables given.
  • getTime(date) - returns date defined in absolute date format presented in milliseconds from 1970. Allow any kind of calculations with date.
  • dateFormat(date,format) - returns date formated. Date and formated is defined in the brackets.
  • todayDate() - returns today date in standard format.
  • dateAdd(date, type,value) - adds a defined number of days, months or years to defined date. Example: dateAdd(todayDate(), d, 1) - adds one day to todays date. Available types: d - day; M - month; y - year.
  • dateDeduct(date, type,value) - take defined number of days, months or years from defined date. Example: dateAdd(todayDate(), d, 1) - takes 1 day from todays date. Available types: d - day; M - month; y - year.

USE CASE OF FORMULA FIELD - PREDEFINED COMMENTS BOX BASED ON A FIELD VALUE

Using Formula field with "add" function in the formula, you can create a practical Comments box that shows one of the predefined comments based on the value of another field. Here is an example:

  • In the Weight field, you entered a value less than 60 kg. → It will automatically show you a comment "You entered weight XX kg and that means you are lean."
  • In the Weight field, you entered a value between 60-90 kg. → It will automatically show you a comment "You are a normal guy because your weight is XX kg".
  • In the Weight field, you entered a value more than 90 kg. → It will automatically show you a comment "Eat less because your weight is XX kg."

Below you may see an example formula and the two fields in Calculoid.

 

CHECKBOX - FIELD FOR YES/NO QUESTIONS/CONDITIONS AND FOR MULTI-SELECT OPTIONS.

Calculoid.com

Checkbox Field Config:

  • Value if checked - a numerical value of the field when checked
  • Value if unchecked - a numerical value of the field when unchecked

Set value for checked/unchecked for further calculations in the formula field.

Several checkboxes can be used for multi-select. Use HTML field to present the question and the checkbox fields for answers/options.

Payment recurrence:

This feature enables repeating a payment automatically in a defined recurring cycle/period. Go to the "Edit Field" menu of a "Payments" field. Here open the "Payment recurrence" sub-menu. In order for payment recurrence to work, you need to set the following fields:

  • Enable recurring payments - default - Select Yes or No to enable/disable recurring payments for this field by default.
  • Enable recurring payments - field override - Select which field controls if the recurrent is enabled. Field value 1 for enabled, any other value means disabled. This gives the user the freedom to decide himself and overrides the above-defined default setting.
  • Recurring cycle - default - Select time unit for the recurring period (days, weeks, months or years).
  • Recurring cycle - field override - Select which field holds the recurrent cycle. Field value must be one of the following characters: D, W, M, Y. This gives the user the freedom to decide himself and overrides the above-defined default setting.
  • Recurring period - default - Enter the number of cycles between payments.
  • Recurring period - field override - Select which field holds the recurrent period. Field value must be a positive number (integer). This gives the user the freedom to decide himself and overrides the above-defined default setting.

The details about realized payments can also be found under Details > Submissions menu of the calculator with the payment field. Moreover, if you have your calculator integrated with an external system (such as Mautic, Redmine or others), a realized payment can be configured so as to automatically create a CRM case in the system.

If you have your Calculoid integrated with third-party systems, there is an option to also repeat executions of these integrations with each payment recurrence. For example, when a standard payment is set up to automatically create a new task or CRM case, another task or CRM case will be created with each repetition of the payment. To configure this setting, go to "Integrate" tab in the top menu, select "Other" in the left sidebar and toggle the switch "Recurrent Payment Integrations" to enable.

CONDITION TO DISPLAY FIELD FEATURE - SHOW FIELD BASED ON A LOGICAL/MATH CONDITIONS

This strong feature allows to show particular field based on logical or math condition. Once the condition is true, the field is shown, untill that the field is hidden. Hidden field can still be used in calculations. Condition to display field:

  • Add new condition - add a new condition to display field
  • Field - pick a field. The condition is based on the value of this field.
  • Operator - basic math operators to define the condition. Available operators are: == equal to (same as =); != non equal (same as ≠); > greater than; < less than; >= greater than or equal to; <=less than or equal to.
  • Value - define a true value for the selected field.
  • And - adds next condition with and operator. Two conditions combined by 'and' operator must be both true to show the field. You literally say: show field C when field A is 10 AND field B is 20.
  • Or - adds next condtion with or operator. When you combine two condtions with 'or' operator, only one should be true to show field. You literally say: show field C if field A is 10 OR field B is 20.
