    Request assistance creating form with several categories of choices with pricing.

    Asked by rchaus on September 14, 2016 at 06:54 PM

    Is there a Guru in the house? I need some assistance configuring a form for gathering submissions as listings in a service directory. I need to have seven categories, each one with several nested choices or check-boxed areas. Example: Writer--copywriter, screenwriter, etc... Somehow, I need to add pricing to each main category, with a discount if a person chooses more than one. I've been playing around with the widgets, but have not yet found one that fits all the criteria (or maybe I just don't know how to set them up correctly). Any suggestions? Thanks!

    (P.S. I do not have a working URL of this form; only my saved form that I've been tinkering with.)

    Base on your form https://www.jotform.com/62527423606151 I assume you are after these options

     

    It can be achieved using Payment tool and by creating sub categories from a main product/items.

    User guide: Create-Sub-Products-Based-on-a-Product-Option

    I will try create a demo form as well base on your categories. I'll get back to you once I have it.

    Thanks.

    Ooh, thank you for pointing me in the right direction! I will play with the tool... the sub categories don't matter, but I will need to have pricing for each main category (and if they choose more than one they get a discount), and also a few 1/4 page ad spots (which I have not yet placed on the form).

    After I figure all of that out, I need to find out how to limit the number of 1/4 page ads available, because there will only be two available in each section.

    I found the section on conditional logic, so I'll read up on that to see if it will help organize all of this.

    Thank you for responding so quickly:)

    Thank you for providing more details. 

    I have created the demo form anyways so I can show you better how things work. :-) Here https://www.jotformpro.com/form/62577947028973

    I recorded on how I did it on one of the item for guidance.

    but I will need to have pricing for each main category (and if they choose more than one they get a discount)

    You can achieve this using the Special pricing option for each Quantity.

    The actual form work like this (this is just quick draft but should show the concept already)

     

    Contact us anytime should you require further assistance.
