Selecting items from a catalog table to a new order

I need to build a way to select multiple existing items from a catalog table to add to a new parent record.  Is there a way to do that?

  • So you have the structure setup and can add the children records one by one, but you are now asking if there is a way to make the process faster for the users to add multiple children?

      The issue is that they are not adding new items but picking from a list of over 800 items.  I have used the technique using a checkbox and a pipeline to add the selected items.  I am hoping there is a way to use like a record picker to select the items.  Ultimately a new line item would be created from a copy of the catalog item.

        Is the issue that the pipeline runs too slow for a good user experience?

        Also do you have a many to many join table set up where one Order has many product order lines  and one Product master has many order lines.
