Has anyone designed a simple order form in Jotform? I can't find a way of doing it! Any ideas?Asked by philbyuk on November 13, 2015 at 07:32 AM
The order form needs to collect the name of the person ordering and their email, then asks them to write a quantity for each fixed item being ordered, with a submit button.
Item ref Item Description Quantity to order
1234 Item name one User entry
1235 Item Name two User entry
etc for 30 entries....
Ideally the Submit button should generate a PDF which
I think the best way to set this up would be to use our Payment Tool. If this will involve an online payment such as Paypal, you can use Paypal in the section. If not, use the Purchase Order from the same section.
For the Item Reference, I would suggest adding it at the end of the Item Description.

Great Welvin, that's really helpful and almost what I want!
How do I:
- the items being ordered have no cost and I don't want the word "Free" appearing on the form. How do I get rid of it?
- in the responder email, I only get a data option of "My product". Is it possible to access the sub data items. I only want the confirmation email to show Product name and associated order quantity.
Look forward to hearing from you.
You can remove the "Free" text by injecting the following custom CSS codes to your form:

You can strip out the labels in the payment tool. Here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/231-How-to-Strip-Payment-Labels-and-Separate-Payment-Info-on-Email-Alerts. But unfortunately, you cannot separate the quantity info as well as the price. Example:
Were you able to create an order form that displays the order summary (of My Products) and also shows the Product name and associated order quantity?
