    We currently do not have any means to calculate values with the Configurable List widget - neither to perform calculations inside Configurable List, nor to use values entered within the Configurable List widget in our form calculations.

    Form calculations can only be performed with regular form fields, and with some of our widgets. You can perform calculations on a form by following this guide:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form

    Often, we need to perform calculations based on what your users are selecting in your fields (Drop Down, Radio Button, Check Box fields, etc). We can use this type of fields inside calculations by assigning calculation values to their options:

    If you need any further assistance with setting up your calculations, please describe in a little more detail about what or how you'd like to calculate values from your forms, and we'll do our best to help. Cheers
