Steps & Picks

What are steps and picks?

An order page that you create is set up like a step by step wizard. Think of a step as basically a question and a pick as one of the options that the user can choose. For example, in a step you might ask "Choose toppings for your pizza." Your picks might be "Pepperoni", "Sausage", "Bell Peppers", "Extra Cheese", and so on.

How to set up steps and picks

1 Click on the "Steps & Picks". There are two different types of steps you can create. They are "Single Picks" and "Multi Picks". A step with "Single Picks" is basically a group of radio buttons where the user can only choose one pick in the step. A step with "Multi Picks" is a group of checkboxes where the user can choose more than one pick in the step. Notice that there is two different types of steps already created for you as a default.

2 You can click on the default steps ("Untitled Step 1" or "Untitled Step 2") to edit or you can add one yourself by clicking the "Add Single Picks" or "Add Multi Picks" button. Then, you will see an edit box for you to edit the step. Fill in the "Step Title" as the title of your step.

3 Notice that there are two default picks ("Untitled Pick 1" and "Untitled Pick 2"). You can click on one of the default picks or add another by clicking on the "Add Pick" button.

4 In the next edit box for the pick, you will see input fields for "Pick Title", "Pick Description", and "Pick Price". The "Quantity" toggle button allows you to include a quantity option for users to specify the quantity of the particular pick. Fill in the fields and you have created one pick. You can add as many picks as you want.

Repeat the above steps to create all your steps and picks.

Design Customization

You can customize colors, add a background image, and choose a font for your page. Click on "Deisgn" to see and change design customization settings for your page.

Inquiry Form
