    Multiples of the same products, with customizations?

    Asked by sthomay on December 20, 2016 at 12:21 PM

    Hello,

    We're selling a single shirt, but I need for each shirt that is ordered to be able to select a size and tell us the custom name they want on them.  For instance:

    I want 3 shirts

    Size S, customization "Sarah"

    Size L, customization "Bill"

    Size XL, customization "Bob"

     

    And I need to know that Sarah's is the S, etc.  How do I do this?  

    Also, is there a way to make it so that if they select a quantity of 3, 3 sets of boxes (size and customization for each) show up without doing a rule for each number?

    You could do that with conditions but that will require creating of each text box/drop down field that you would like to potentially reveal. What I mean is, if your users can order, for example, a maximum of 10 shirts, you will have to have 10 fields for size and 10 fields for customization. Then when they select how many shirts they want those fields are revealed. For example this form I created: https://form.jotform.com/63545616285967 I did it only for three shirts, for example.

    Or, you can use Configurable list widget:

    But there users will have to add (by using plus sign) information for each shirt. The number field 'How many shirts would you like' can be used in calculation purposes to calculates the total they have to pay. For example, if one shirt is 10$ and they input 3 in that field it will calculate 3x10$ = 30$ in the total field. Here is the Form example for that scenario: https://form.jotform.com/63544786102962

    Please let us know if any of those could work for you.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    I think either option will work, but it seems like the configurable list widget has a max of 3, which I don't know if it is enough.  Can I make it do more than that?  Can you explain how you created the first example?

    The Configurable List widget is unlimited. The user/respondent can add as many as he wants. Just like how it was demonstrated on the second form https://form.jotform.com/63544786102962 that my colleague created.

    Can I make it do more than that?  Can you explain how you created the first example?

    The first form doesn't use the Configurable List Widget though, it uses a regular Dropdown menu and Conditions.

    The fastest and easiest way to know how it was setup is to clone the form. Just copy the URL of any of the the 2 forms you wish to clone:

    1. https://form.jotform.com/63545616285967 - Regular Dropdown with Conditions

    2. https://form.jotform.com/63544786102962 - Configurable List Widget

    Then follow this guide on How-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-a-URL
