Order Form Version 2 Update: New Drag & Drop Interface (Plus Loads More!)

Order Form Beta Update

Hey store owners!

We’re really happy to announce that in version 2 of WooCommerce Wholesale Order Form!

After releasing version 1.16, we worked tirelessly for almost a year to totally redesign the plugin from scratch and test it with our beta users. This was done to provide a better order form solution that will result in high-quality results and enable our esteemed store owners to grow their businesses even more.

What’s new in 1.16?

We’ve really made some great strides with the latest version of Order Form. Here’s some of the cool stuff we’ve been working on:

1. Multiple Forms

Previously, when you installed Order Form, there was just one form. That was it.

In version 2, we’re shooting for being able to create multiple Order Forms in many different configurations.

You’ll also be able to add forms anywhere, including multiple forms on one page if you really want.

2. Drag and Drop Configurable Forms

And since we’re now able to have multiple forms, we decided to build a form builder in which you can drag and drop elements around into place in the header, table, and footer sections.

It’s a better way to be able to alter the configuration of order forms, create new order forms easily, and tweak the settings of parts of your order form in a more intuitive way.

It’s a preview of what kind of fun things are coming with our other plugins too (we’re looking at you Lead Capture 👀 )

3. Product Sorting

Previously, a default option controlled how the Wholesale Order Form was sorted. Now that we have a drag-and-drop builder, you can arrange the products on the order form in different ways.

Coming Soon

There’s still a little way to go on the journey of the WooCommerce Wholesale Order Form, but we’re really excited to release these new features to you today.

In the meantime, here are just a few of the amazing features we have planned to get up soon:

  • Additional integrations! – the new order form was thoughtfully constructed in order to make it easier than ever to add to our collection of connected plugins.
  • More column types! – we want to add a lot of other column kinds, including product categories, product tags, review scores, and others.
  • Extra filtering options! – new filtering features that we have previously planned will be made available in the upcoming months, so stay tuned!

Compatibility With WooCommerce Wholesale Prices & Prices Premium

This latest version 2 release introduces better compatibility with WooCommerce Wholesale Prices & Prices Premium.

You will need to ensure you have also updated your WooCommerce Wholesale Prices Premium to its latest version to take advantage of the compatibility between those plugins.

  1. Can the wholesale order form handle bundled products yet?
    Also is there any way to get wholesale order notifications sent when a new order is received, to a different set of emails than the retail orders?

    1. Hey Janel,

      It doesn’t handle bundled products as yet, but we’re looking at that seriously as a future feature (it wasn’t possible in v1).

      Re your other question, we don’t have a knowledge base article for this as yet so this one would be best directed to our support crew. Please send through a ticket and we’ll take a look and see if we can help :)

      1. Thanks Josh, we have quite a few bundles but this means we can’t use the order form which is disappointing. I will contact support re other issue. Also do you know of any way to sync wholesale orders across to Xero accounting so that it shows the full customer name, company name, email address etc, but only shows a generic name when syncing non wholesale (retail ) orders?

  2. Hi guys,
    This all sounds exciting. There are some great ‘product table’ plugins starting to come into the market so I can image the challenge of keeping up with them! We love the wholesale suite as a one-stop-shop for our wholesale business so really welcome the updates. We would love to see some more filter options that you could drag into the header; for example by an attribute (i.e. brand, colour or size), or by in-stock items. It is the only negative feedback we get from customers.
    Can’t wait for the release :)

    1. Thanks for the great feedback Danielle!

      Yes, we have a number of filter elements planned for being able to add those into the header/footer or (and this is something that we haven’t solidified yet) into a sidebar of sorts. We’re keen to make this the best product table type plugin, especially for wholesale purposes where its ultra important.

  3. Hello,

    In the beta version…

    1. How can I add the “Add Selected Products to Cart” button to both the header and the footer?

    2. How can I control the size/formatting of the table? The columns are currerntly too narrow.

    3. How can I display products with variations? I would like to display all variations at once (just like in the current version) instead of a drop-down.

    4. I have created three forms in the beta version… How do I display different categories in each one of them?

    5. How do I select a default category for each form in the beta version?

    Thanks!
