Rounding without add-on

You can read on the Gravity Forms community forum more about rounding without an add-on. This is no standard functionality in Gravity Forms for rounding, but with custom JavaScript/jQuery you can program your own solution if you want the rounding to happen in real time.

If real-time rounding is not necessary, you can also use the gform_field_validation filter to check the entered value or the gform_pre_submission filter to change the value after submission. Read more on the Gravity Forms forum.

Rounding by Increments GravityWiz

This can be also very handy if you want rounding on bigger numbers, like rounding to 100 if something is above 50.
