    Creating a Purchase Order Sheet

    Asked by potterati on June 09, 2017 at 05:38 PM

    I am a chair of a department at a university. I want to create a form to send to my faculty where they can type in their purchase request online. I want to be able to have the following: Description of order, quantity, total. Then, I want to ask, "do you wish to add to this order? If they reply yes, then I want a new set of Description of order, quantity, and total to show up. I want this to continue for about 15 times. I tried duplicating the fields and setting conditions but it did not work. 

    What is the easiest way to accomplish what I'm trying to do. I just need them to be able to enter as many things as they need from one vendor on this sheet.

    You can try using the Purchase Order field with Sub-Products option enabled.

    User guide: Create-Sub-Products-Based-on-a-Product-Option

    The limitation to it is that you cannot dynamically add/remove new sets of order base on a condition (i.e. "Do you want to add new order?" will be mute).

    You will have to layout all 15 orders right away and just let the user decide up to how many they will fill in.

    I will create a demo form base on this. I'll get back to you shortly.
