After setting weekend prices, press the “Save” button.Update the post. You need to create forms with the Calculated fields to display the seasonal price.

Applying Seasonal Prices in Form’s Calculated Fields

To create a form, navigate to the JetFormBuilder > Add New tab. The form should have the following block fields:

  • Hidden field with the default settings. If you want, you can change the field’s name, for example, from the post_id to the room_id;
  • Check-in/check-out dates field;

Add other fields as you need, i.e., for the guests, additional services, etc.

Things to know

Be aware that all field names inside one form must be unique and consist only of lowercase Latin letters without spaces. To separate words in field names, use “-” or “_” characters.

Finally, you need to create the Calculated field block. This field provides calculations using meta fields of the CPT, macros, and the data users input into the form’s block field.

For example, the Calculated field below returns the total price by the formula:






%FIELD::_dates%*%ADVANCED_PRICE::_check_in_out%  一 the form field _dates is multiplied with the macro _check_in_out.

%FIELD::additional_services_a%*%FIELD::guest%*%FIELD::_dates% 一 the form fields _additional_services, _guest, and _dates are multiplied.
