Is there a way to show an order confirmation (or a review of the form) before it's been submitted?

    I'm creating an order form that's a bit long (four pages). I wanted to know if there's a way to include an order confirmation before someone submits the form i.e. a final page that shows the customer a review of what he/she has selected in case they've mistyped something in their order. I thought about making a conditional field on the final page for each of the previous fields, but it wouldn't show what had been typed in the previous field, would it? In other words, if Box B appears when I input a quantity into Box A, how can I get Box B to also show that quantity? I hope I'm making sense to you.

    That is not quite what I am looking for but thank you. I think my description above was more confusing than helpful. I'll try again: I'm putting together an order form for product literature that is free (so I'm not using the Paypal fields). The form is split up according to different categories, and for each category I have a certain number of check boxes. Each check box corresponds to a product (so if I wanted to order literature for Product A, I would check the box for Product A within one of the categories). I have my form set up so that when the box for Product A is checked, another box appears in which I can input the quantity I want to order of Product A literature (so if I want 3 packs of literature on Product A I check the box for Product A and then type "3" in the quantity box).

    There is a lot of product literature to choose from, and not everyone takes a minute to double check that they've entered the correct quanitities of things or the correct shipping information. I was hoping there'd be a way to set up a final page on the order form, before the customer has hit Submit, that reviews what they've selected. It would be something along the lines of this: Let's say a customer selected Product A and put a quantity of 3, did not select Product B, and selected Product C with a quantity of 6, etc. The final page of the form (the "review" page) would duplicate each of the quantities that the customer had selected: It would show another quantity box for A with the number 3 in it, would NOT show a box for B since the customer did not select it, and would show a quantity box for C with a 6 in it. This way if a customer meant to only order 5 copies of Product C, or forgot to select a quantity for B, they can go back and fix it BEFORE hitting Submit.

    Hope I explained it a little better now. Thanks for the help

    Hello again

    Thank you for explaining me with more details your scenario. That sounds like a Shopping Cart feature and unfortunately,  this is not currently available . However if we see more people requesting such feature, the development team would consider to develop it in the  future.

    Best regards

    Jeanette
