    How can I create a simple order form that would be similar to the attached spreadsheet?

    Asked by hikerted on June 26, 2015 at 09:49 AM

    I have 2 clients with similar needs. They both need a form that the user would fill in the fields indicating the product desired, quantity and size. Each order requires special handling and direct communication with the customer to determine final pricing and shipping costs so they don't want a "shopping cart" like PayPal. All they want is for the form to generate a list of products desired by the customer so that the client can call them about the order. I looked at the Spreadsheet Widget but the fields were too large to fit all the product info.

    I believe that you can achieve this by using our Spreadsheet widget, as you have initially discovered. Making it smaller is not a big problem, all we need to do is apply some custom CSS to the widget, by clicking on its Wand-shaped icon and entering the following code:

    tr, th, td, input {
        height: 12px;
        padding: 0px !important;
    }

    You can see a smaller spreadsheet widget in action, here:

    Please let us know if this will work to your satisfaction, or if you need further assistance.
