    Is it possible to create an order form with between 900 and 1,000 products and categorize them separately

    Asked by danielavognar on October 10, 2016 at 11:12 PM

    I have an independent rep firm representing four different companies.  One offers between 900 and 1,000 products. I've set up separate forms for the different product categories, but found it was difficult to place an order at a customer site because I had to go back and forth between the different categories on my website.  Is there a way to paste all the different categories into one form, alphabetize it by product # and set up more than one column to make it shorter?  Is it possible to create page breaks within the order form itself?

    Hi.

    There could be several ways to do this. I will give you two options for this. Before that I want to state that 900-1000 items would be huge for one form. Your form could have troubles with big transactions. So I suggest you to divide your products into separate forms and use these forms with separate links within your web site.

    Ok one strategy is to use check boxes. Adding your products into them. And then calculating the total amount. Here how to add calculation. After calculating the total amount, insert the value to payment field. Here is how to that.

    Another strategy is to use form collapse survey tool.

    And here is an example form uses Form Collapse.

    Here how you could clone this form.

    You need to define different payments for different collapse sections. You need to create different forms for different sections and embed them using text boxes into a main form. And at last you need to calculate total amount from these sections. If you want to pursue in this way, we will be here to help you.

    I hope this answer helps, please contact us again if you need any other help.

    Good Luck!
