I want to setup a rule that every time a custom field changes, it will add the value of that field and another field and put the result in a third field.
The two values to add come from a custom simple select list with numerical values.
In the automation wizard I added an action that updates my third field with the sum of the two fields as such:
The rule executes correctly but I'm not seeing the sum displayed in my field.
I'm guessing I need to add something extra to retrieve the selected value from my custom field lists?
Any help is much appreciated.
I suspect that it is not being added because the custom field is not a number type field for your select list.
Thanks for your answer John.
Is there a way to work with select lists and do the operation I mentioned?
I want to keep the field with a list of fixed values to avoid user error.
Or is there a way to make the options of the list be a number type? I don't see an option to modify this within the custom field options.
You should be able to set a variable for the value in the dropdown and then use the variable field in your calculation.
