    Hi there,


    First, I want to thank you guys.  Your service has been great and I am hoping I will be able to do away with the need for paying programmers to do work on my website in the future!

    My form is coming along great. People can select various items on my form and get a total price. Just wondering , what is the easiest way that we can display a shopping cart like summary on the form that people can see at all times (or that they can click on a button to make appear) which shows the items that they have selected along with the price. That way they can check everything over before they hit the submit button. I have found that there are many ways to do things in jotform but the simplest way is usually the best, and I am not sure what that is.

    Thanks for your googd feedback about our service.

    Please let me inform you that currently we do not have a "Shopping Cart" function/feature that can allow you to accomplish what you need. 

    However, while reading the description of your inquiry, I got an idea of a workaround that may work for you. This workaround would require to use Page Break buttons and apply Conditional Logics. That way the user can go back to the product section and make any change/correction. Please take a look at this demo form:

    Go to the last page, there is an option that asks to check the products that have been chosen, which will redirect you to the Products section when the Next button is clicked. It will also show a Submit Now button in the Products page to submit the form from that section with no need to go the last page again.

    Please let us know if that workaround may work for you, that way we can provide you enough details an help you to accomplish that scenario with your form.

    Hi Eliezer,
    Thank you for your answer. I have looked at that other form, and don't really think it is going to work as the options they will have selected will be spread over 2 pages, and I only want the ones they have selected to be appearing. I think in that case my best method would be to condense the form as much as possible and try and get it all on the one page .
    Thanks for your time,

    Hello Dave,

    On behalf of my colleague you are welcome. 

    You can use form collapse field on your form which will group fields. Please take a look at this cloned form :

    Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:
