Is it possible to build something like this in InDesign? A client is asking me, i already said its probably impossible and sounds like a website will work better, but wondering, how much of this is possible via PDF?
- product catalogue imported via XLS with 5000+ products with photo, name, price, tax and similar columns (i know about this part)
- then for each product have an editable field when the user can type in the quantity (sort of like an 'add to cart')
- a total checkout for all quantities and prices is calculated on the last page and then an email is sent to the owner of the catalogue, like a checkout order
Note: yeah i know the email part is ridiculous, but what alternatives are there to pass a selection of products around? Can Google Docs somehow work with all the above?
