How to add a text value as a product quantityAsked by rickvv on September 09, 2014 at 09:20 AM
I have a purchase order form setup here:
And in two of my items, I can make "Select" the first qty option, but the second two items won't allow that.
I want folks to specifically choose the quantity, instead of defaulting to "1".
Is there something I can do to get this to work?
To have "Select" as the first option for the other fields, simply add it in as an option for the quantity:
When added to the other two fields, your form then looks like this:

Thanks- I tried that earlier, but the jotform gives me an error that I must use numeric value in that slot just above the "1".
I'll try again, but I think I'm missing something...
Here's what Didn't work:
"place cursor in front of "1", press Enter, go up a line, Enter 'Select'"
(got "numeric value required" using this method)
Here's what Did work:
"Place cursor in front of "1", type the word 'Select', Press Enter" Save.
Funny that one method worked, but the other didn't.
Thanks for getting me thinking!
Unfortunately, there might be a conflict if someone select a product with the quantity set to 'Selected'.
We would like to recommend you to stick with the numeric quantities (for example add a '0' instead of 'selected'), or try a special pricing option instead:
When it try this, the jotform goes red and says the entry needs to be numerical entry.
Am I missing something?
Sent from my iPhone...blame Siri for any typos.
Unfortunately, you cannot add a placeholder text in the quantity property. As advised, add "0" instead of the "Select".
