    Shopping List

    Asked by harpersmom on June 21, 2017 at 12:49 PM

    Hello.  I would like the ability to make my own grocery list from menu items.  Ideally, I would like to select "Spaghetti" from a drop down list and it populates "spaghetti sauce, spaghetti noodles, ground turkey".  I would ultimately like to enter all of my meals and then chose them to populate a grocery list every week.  I don't know how to accomplish this in word, excel or jotform.  I have some moderate experience w/ all, but no web design experience or macro use.  I've even purchased some services, but the don't exactly fit what I'd like to do.  It this possible w/ jotform?  Thanks in advance!

    Yes it is possible. You could implement this by defining a drop down list full of meal names. The ingredients are hidden. And when the dropdown selects a meal it can show the ingredients.
