Hi there @robbeattie
Thank you for the inquiry~ That is an excellent question.
We have noticed that there are basically two main use cases for Total Calculator:
#1 It can be a simple and helpful way for your users to get an idea of what type of services you offer, along with a description for those services, and a list of prices. In addition to just seeing the information, the user can get an estimated total for the services that they may want to purchase, and even print off that information for later, so that they don’t have to go back and look through everything again. In this case, you are absolutely right, the word “Estimate” might be a better choice of words, but luckily the stack allows you to change all of the text for the buttons etc, so if you prefer, you can easily change it to “Print Estimate”. : )
#2 The other case that we have found to be pretty common is an internal usage of the stack by companies. There are many companies out there using the stack internally to print off quick invoices. They can have a few default services that they might use often, and they can also use the “Add Items” feature to create new ones on the fly. This stack provides a dead simple way to create new invoices and print them off quickly. We’re also working on implementing some new feature for adding custom info to each invoice before print.
These are the two main use cases for the stack. I hope this will give you a better understanding of how it works, what it can be used for, and what it is all about.
