Product field > Stock setup: allow stock limit on the product even when sub products are enabled

    Ok. I've got a weird question. I am using a jotform to sell bagels. I produce 80 bagels a week--that is my inventory that I need to track. For each of the bagels there are 7 topping options.

    For the bagel item I have enabled the product options which are the seven potential toppings. Now if I enable quantity--then my customers can only order set quantity of the same product option (four plain, four sesame, etc)--but I can track the total stock. If I select the "select sub products from options" toggle, my customers can select individual amounts for the options, but the stock is now tracked by the topping and not the bagel itself (i.e. I cannot limit the total number of bagels, only the toppings).

    Is there a way to enable the "select sub products from options" (to allow my customers to select various iterations of bagels and toppings) yet still track the stock on the total inventory of bagels--to sell out when the system hits 80 bagels?

    Yes, I understand your question.

    You are currently seeing the stock set up per sub product and not the product itself.


    Unfortunately at the moment, when you setup sub products, the stock setup will be for each sub product.

    If you want the other way around you should not set up the sub product option.

    I am anyway escalating this to our back-end team to check if we can have both sub-products and the option to set stock on the direct product itself.

    WE will let you know once there is an update.

    I have a similar question. I am selling artwork. Options are framed or unframed with different prices. Right now I have to put stock of 1 for each option, but there is only one piece of artwork.

    also can the “sold out” be edited to say “sold”

    Any word on if this has been updated? I still am hoping to have the stock tied to the item and not the product options.

    Unfortunately, we have not received any updates from our backend team.

    We cannot provide an ETA for this implementation. However, we will let you know once we get any news on this.
