    Can I add subtotals for a group of products on the purchase order field?

    Asked by warre10 on April 15, 2014 at 08:57 AM


    can I make a subtotal for every 4 products.


    1.beker + 1.pasta + 1.saus + 1.topping  = subtotal (hit meer pasta bestellen-

    2.beker + 2.pasta + 2.saus + 2.topping  = subtotal

    3.beker + 3.pasta + 3.saus + 3.topping  = subtotal

    3.beker + 3.pasta + 3.saus + 3.topping  = subtotal


    So each box has its total price.

    I  make this in Dreamweaver:

    Hello, That might be difficult to achieve with the purchase order field -

    If you would consider using the drop down boxes, you can formulate the same solution using the Image field, the dropdown box and the form calculation widget as shown below:

    For the Options and their Values:

    For the Sub-Total Field - this is done using the form calculation widget:

    Here's a demo form of the first group of products: http://jotformpro.com/form/41044610244946?

    You may clone the form and take a closer look.

    Let us know if this helps

    As mentioned by my colleague, your requirements are not possible with our Payment Integrations. You may consider using Dropdown Fields and use our Calculation Widget for the Sub-Totals and the Grand Total. For example, the form given my colleague. 

    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Or, how about a form that looks like this: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/41103780694959. So instead of adding multiple sections, you will enable sub-product with custom quantity box. 

    This is the guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/264-Create-Sub-Products-Based-on-a-Product-Option
