    Purchase Order Form Category Prices

    Asked by upvalley on September 14, 2011 at 03:22 PM

    I have a purchase order form for wines. There are 50-55 products divided among 5 vintners. Each product is has different attributes, eg. vintage, varietla, price, qty, etc.

     

    I don't like that potential buyers have to scroll all the way down the page to see complete offering.

     

    Since you cannot create multi-column POs or have a multiple POs within one form, is there any other way to streamline this and make it as user-friendly as possible???

    Hi,

    Try this custom CSS I came up with:

    .form-product-item {
    border: 1px solid #EFEFEF;
    margin: 1px;
    float: left;
    width: 280px;
    }
    .form-product-item + br {
    display:none;
    }
    br + b {
    float: left;
    padding-top: 20px;
    }

    To inject this css, go to Setup & Embed > Preferences > Form Styles > Inject Custom CSS

    Hope you like it  :)

    This worked great. Thank you. I'm still pondering how to consolidate product info and streamline as much as possible. Is there a way to pick one product, then pick it's attributes? For example:

    VINTNER:Barlow Vineyards

    VINTAGE: 2007

    VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon

    QTY: 3

    Hi,

    It could have been possible if the price for each varietal and vintage does not differ. There is a way to add a property option in the Purchase Order Tool, but it cannot generate varied price. I believe I have already submitted a request to have item sub-categories in payment tools, but we haven't heard yet from our developers. Those guys are quite a busy bunch. We get like tons of requests everyday! :)

    Anyway, I can think of a workaround but it requires creating multiple forms, one for each vintner. I am not sure if you are keen on learning about that because it can probably cause more trouble, especially since having multiple forms mean checking out multiple submission databases for orders. It can get quite messy.
