    I would like to offer multiple options for different catagories, and still use the show total button.

    I am making a form for a family with multiple students who would like to take classes.  I have been unable to put in a second total button. 

    I also would like to format it in 2 columns but don't see that as an option, either.

    Thanks for your help!

    There really isn't an easy way to do this as the Purchase Order tool wasnt really designed with your particular requirements in mind. 

    Now, having said that, there may well be a workaround:

    When the form is as close to how you want it to look on JotForm. You could inspect the forms source code and make edits to it manually to get it closer to the look you want. 

    We could help with that source code editing but you would need access to a webserver to upload the updated form source to. 

    Embedding edited source code on your website will only change the appearance of your form, from a JotForm perspective everything else will remain the same. 

    NOTE: Any changes you make to the form in the JotForm editor will require you to make those previous edits again, then reupload the new source back to your webserver again, so you ideally would want to not need to carry out frequent edits to your completed form.


    Please advise if you do want to pursue this workaround and will have a look at the forms' source code for you and advise on any steps you would need to take.
