    Is it possible to modify JotForm's PURCHASE ORDER from their Payment Tools?

    Asked by paulpacey27 on September 07, 2013 at 05:02 AM

    I really love Jotforms for my business but I am stuck by certain limitations in regards to their purchase order options.

    I have attached a screen shot identifying 2 challenges, and a URL to show the current form in context.

    If insight, or help, is available I would be most grateful. Thank you

    Unfortunately when I tried to do clone your form and modified the source code its not getting the values when trying CHALLENGE1 and CHALLENGE2 so basically with my own testing this is not possible as the program identifies whats only in the options available.

    I don't know if some of my tenured colleagues has anything to add about this but as far as my testing is concern 1. I don't see any option in the form buidler that will add the feature that you want 2. tested using the source but the value is not accepting since it is design that way.

    What I can is I will forward this to our developer for future ehancement but I'm not sure when it would take effect as they have some priorities that needs to be done first.

    OK, thanks for at least taking a look. 

    Another question though:

    If I were to look to hire a developer who could handle building something like this from scratch, what technical skills would they need to have?

    ie. HTML, Excel...??

    Thanks again

    It should be more on PHP and MySQL for the back end and front end would be HTML,CSS,Javascript and Jquery. That's just my opinion as far as I know there are some other languages. But if it's on web design you should invest on PHP.
