Product checkboxes?

  1. Jamie M

    To check, is there any way we can enable checkboxes in the product field?

    Sure I can use the 'option' field, but the resulting email doesn't itemize the selections, it just adds it all up.


    EDIT: Also, I'm not using PayPal or anything like that, I just want to be able to select a whole bunch of "products" (classes in this case) and have them itemize in an email. There are about 500 in total, so using individual fields is obviously out of the question.

  2. The product field does not currently support checkboxes because a Product is a single value field. So there is no way to use checkboxes right now.

    Options are different, a Product can have multiple options. But A Product can't have multiple Products because it is A Product.

    We plan on introducing a new Product Field field type in the future that will allow you to have a list of products with quantities so the user can fill in the quantities. This is one of the future enhancements planned for the Product Field.

  3. okay so i have a similar question. I have one required product and a list of add-on products. I used a product field for the required product. I used the options field to list the add-on products and prices with checkboxes. The required product when selected with a radial box and options (checked boxes) add up for a correct total on the gravity feed form but the options and prices don't show up on the paypal invoice.

    Do I understand that these won't show up as products because they must be listed individually as products?

  4. I have the same/similar question - I have created options for my product so that I don't need to enter each one individually, however the notification does not show the options - just the product with different prices.

  5. I have the same problem as Jamie - checkboxes in the product field would be SO useful.
    Pity it's not ready to roll out now ... my form is taking forever - and I have about 5 others to do :(

    I see the question was posted a year ago :(
