Just had a play converting one of my food ordering jot forms.

    Is there a way to show groups of fields within the pages (card).

    Let me try to explain that easier.........

    If my chinese menu for 100 choices is converted to card, my customers will die of hunger before they get though all the single fields.

    So is it possible, to have groups of food types within the card EG

    Customer has card with several types of meal " Curry, Chow Mein, House Special

    " for instance

    Customer clicks on Curry

    Now has card with

    chicken Curry

    Beef curry

    Prawn Curry

    I'm guessing without spending all day trying to work this out that the easiest way would be to redesign original form before converting?

    My forms are quite complex, complete with order total..........

    I love the idea of cards, but are my menus too much for cards to handle?

    I have checked your account and found a form (Lucky House Chinese) that I believe you are referring to based on your description.

    Upon checking, I see that you are using checkbox fields so your respondents can select a dish from the types of meal.

    Unfortunately, the feature, Multi-line Question, only allows Textbox, Email, Number, and Drop-down fields.


    Perhaps you can just use the Purchase Order under Payments.


    The Meal Types will be the products and the dishes will be the options for the products.

    Here's a guide that you may use as a reference — Create-Sub-Products-Based-on-a-Product-Option

    Here's a sample that I have created — https://form.jotform.com/80364310767961

    If you have other questions regarding this, please feel free to contact us again anytime.

    Thanks for the detailed response. I don't fully understand your answer yet, but I do know I was using an older method to build the menus previously.

    Will read your reply..........and try to "get it"
