    Asked on January 23, 2018 at 06:24 PM

    The problem i am facing is that i am building a quoting platform which requires three inputs: driving distance, quantity of items and vehicle type to generate a quote.


    The driving distance and vehicle type isn't an issue and have managed to get that working well.


    The problem is that i cannot use configurable list to output values to calculate.

    I need customers to be able to enter quantity and items in the "What are your items?" field. And i used the configurable list widget as this had the option to add extra fields as needed based on extra items.

    From that i want to be able to tally up the total quantity so i can pass this value through for a quote calculation.

    Are you please able to help me out here?

    Unfortunately, the configurable list widget is not supported in calculations. Standard fields like Number, Dropdown, Single Choice, Multiple Choice work the best for calculations.
