    Creating a sub-products in the form

    Asked by roel_heerema on June 02, 2016 at 09:27 AM

    Extremely strange!

    I am very interested in the working of this form, as I have an order list of 11 subcategories and a total of 74 products that can be ordered.

    But, as I tried out the 'working' form (http://www.jotformpro.com/form/31807335276961), I noticed it does not work at all! I tried with the browsers Google Chrome (version 50.0.2661.102, Mozilla Firofox (version 46.0.1) and Microsoft Edge (version 25.10586.0.0) with Microsoft EdgeHTML (version 13.10586), but none of these browsers were capable to activate this form with its collapsible fields.

    How to solve this? I do think it is the responsibility of the programmer to present us a working solution. Moreover: the way it is presented here is not at all a WYSIWYG approach.

    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Add a Sub-Category to an Order Form

    Perhaps this guide will help: https://www.jotform.com/help/264-Create-Sub-Products-Based-on-a-Product-Option. That allows you to create sub products, where it is actually similar to grouping them to categories. Compared to the other guide you checked, this one is much easier to setup.

    Let us know if that will work.

    Hi Charlie,

    Thanks for your solution!

    I already found it and am working on this way, namely to create sub products which is really as I wanted.

    Kind regards and thanks again!
