    I am a school Photographer, and Im trying to create an order form that allows parents to order Print Packages, A La Carte and Special Products. How do I set up Packages and then allow them to pick which poses they want for those packages?

    We will be glad to help you with your concern.

    And to my understanding, base on how you describe your requirements, there will be an option where your potential respondents (parents) would select a package they want then, from the selected package they will be shown poses that are available for them to pick.

    I am thinking of having a dropdown, checkbox or radio button field to list all the packages available.

    Then, set calculation values for each option of the chosen field type that would represent its price.

    In order for the available poses to show based on the selected package, you need to set up conditions in your form.

    I'm not sure how you would like the poses to be represented, but you can also set calculation values to each pose if you wish to.

    Once you've set all that up, you can now get the total amount using a Form Calculation widget.

    As for the payment, you can set up the payment field so that it will also have whatever value there is in the Form Calculation widget.
