    Hi, I want to make a form for a school canteen lunch orders. 


    Can I make a form where a parent orders lunches for say three kids in different classes and then pays at the end.


    So they would order for one child, then “add to cart” then the next “add to cart” and so on and then pay for three orders at once. 

    I want to make it easy so have the full canteen menu with all items and pricing


    thanks

    You can create such order form with our builder, here is a related guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/165-Setting-Up-Your-First-Order-Form

    You can create multiple products (where each would be for a separate kid).

    Could that work for you?

    Thank you!

    Yes but how would i then allocate who the product is for?


    Easy if two kids want exact same item but what if one kids want a burger and one wants a sandwich?

    Initially i was thinking i would duplicate the products under a section colapse but I've just realised you cant duplicate product block.


    So essentially I'd like to have 1 cart per child and then one big payment at the end rather than multiple payments.....

    You can create the products outside the payment field using Multiple Choice fields and assign values to each of the products. Here's a guide for that: How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    Say for example three kids, you have to create three Multiple choice fields and add a dropdown field where the parent can choose the number of kids.

    Enclosed each Multiple choice fields into a Section Collapse. This will let you hide them and trigger visibility by using conditions. Now, if the parent chooses 1 kid from the dropdown, only 1 Section Collapse should be shown. 

    After that, add a Form Calculation widget that will compute for the total amount and pass that value to the payment field.

    Let me create a demo form so I could better demonstrate it. I will be posting the link to this thread shortly.

    If I am correct you want to add quantity against each of the items correct?

    If yes, then you can use the Input table element using the Multi type column. Use two-column one for the item selection and another for the quantity option.

    Result:

    Assign the value to each of the options:

    In the Form calculation widget add all the options.

    Formula:

    Total=item 1 price*quantity selected+item 2 price*quantity+..

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks.
