    How to get the sum of numbers in configurable list widget?

    Asked by skindna on February 10, 2017 at 08:22 AM

    I am using the configurable list widget to calculate the number of units used in a botox treatment.

    The widget allows you to add multiple lines and add quanity used.  Is there a calculation I can use that adds up all the lines? 

    I have tried the calculation field but I'm getting very unusual results.

     

    I would love your assistance with this :)

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to use calculations with the configurable list widget. It is required to use separate fields in order to calculate the sum.

    You may also show/hide the fields on the form based on conditions. Please refer to the guide below that can help you with this.

    Thank you so much for your reply - I thought that might be the case and appreciate you looking into it - I think my work around would be as you suggested and use conditions. :)
