What you will need to build your own Cost Calculator:
Ready? Let’s go!
Our example Cost Calculator will be “How much do you spend on coffee?”
Let’s start by opening Microsoft Excel and creating a new worksheet.
First, we have the Inputs, the Labels and the Values for our Excel file. Column A will have our labels, Column B our default values, and Column C will define the range of the values (and types of input).
Next, we add the label “calculate” to separate the inputs and outputs. Anything listed after the “calculate” cell will be considered outputs.
In Column B, below “Calculate” label, we can add our formulas. In this Coffee Cost Calculator we will just do a basic multiplication of the input values.
Now we are ready to upload our Excel Sheet in Step 2.
Now, once you are in your dashboard, click the green “New Project” button on the right.
You are now in the template gallery, click the “simple white landing page”.
Now, you are at the template preview page, click the “choose” link on the right to get started editing your landing page and calculator.
This brings us to Step 3.
Now, click “Edit landing page” on the top right.
Select “Upload Spreadsheet to change form” and upload the Excel document you created earlier.
Next, we can click “preview” to test and see how your calculator will work and see how it will look before its live.
Now our Calculator is active and ready to calculate.
Now, when you are ready to publish, click “publish” in the upper right corner of the dashboard and it will bring you to the publish page.
From here you can create your landing page URL or connect it to your own existing domain. The choice is yours.
Well, congratulations! You now have your very own Cost Calculator.
