    Im having problems creating my order form

    I need something like this


    1. Turkey Sandwich $2.50

    White Bread (select quantity)

    Gluten Free Bread ( select quantity)



    So that my clients can choose lets say 2 white bread and 1 gluten free bread sandwiches. And that my form results show me the amount of sandwiches and the type of bread they choose.


    Thanks for your help!

    Unfortunatelly, the exact feature that you needed for the Form is not yet available.
    Jotform have a similar in function feature called Purchase Order Form. You can check this among the features in the Payment Tools. If you are interested, you might like to try it out if it will work out for what you needed.
    I will copy this idea of yours to our developers so they can include it among the lists of features request. You will be inform when this feature is release.

    Thank You

    Actually, this is possible. You can add quantity field to your form. You can also add additional options like bread type.

    Thankyou Very Much for your response


    I haven't tried this option yet, but what best worked for me before this option was using the matrix option and it turned out great. 

    I'll try this one and see which works better.

    I've tried the option you've suggested, it gives me the facility to add options but its not functional. What doesn't work for meis that it wont let me add 2 quantity options for each product, the only way is to add 2 options and give them a numerical value, which doesn't reflect in the Total $

    Each product with its own quantity set should be treated as a separate item.  So, it's not possible to set one product item with having a number of sub categories for each.

    In your sample screenshot (as I see that there are 10 items there), you should have 10 products in it.  You will have to set it as this:

    1. Barbacoa NUEVO! - Pan Blanco $25.00
    2. Barbacoa NUEVO! - Pan Integral $25.00
    3. Salchicha Ahumada | Queso | Cheddar - Pan Blanco $22.00
    4. Salchicha Ahumada | Queso | Cheddar - Pan Integral $22.00

    Then after doing this, you can customize the layout to look like similar to the one you have using CSS injection so it will look like each product as categorized.  Can you share with us the Form that you are working on?

    Saludos Boquiaches!

    Entiendo que necesitas que se calcule el total verdad?

    Pues entonces, puedes usar la sugerencia de lyam , tienes que  usar "Purchase Order" de Paypal Tools , en vez de la Matrix

    Luego tendrías insertar el codigo CSS para estilizarlo y hacerlo que se vea como la tienes actualmente 

    Aquí te dejo cómo quedaría , ése es un clon de tu formulario (sin estilos CSS por supuesto)

    Aquí tienes la guía para insertar estilos CSS

    Creo que funciona justo como lo quieres, solo que tienes que hacer algo de magia para que quede alineado como el formulario actual!

    Espero que te sirva. Si tienes otra duda, no dudes en consultarla, en inglés, por supuesto. Lo hice en nuestro idioma para mayor comodidad
