Cascade an order guide variable

Cascading enables values entered for variables in the initial order form to be passed to the equivalent variables in the ordered catalog items.

Cascading allows values entered for variables in the initial order form to be passed to the equivalent variables in the ordered catalog items. For example, a variable on the initial order form prompts the customer to enter a delivery location value. If you enable cascading, the value for this variable then populates delivery location fields on each of the ordered items.

To enable cascading, select the Cascade variables check box when creating the order guide. Then, create variables on the catalog items that match the names of the corresponding variables in the order guide. When a customer places an order, the variables on the ordered items inherit the values of the identically named variables in the order guide.
