ClosedConfigurable Attribute Calculators

Attribute calculators are used to help buyers determine attribute values. After you create an attribute calculator, a calculator icon appears next to the attribute. When someone clicks the icon, the calculator launches.

The calculator contains question sets. The calculator uses the input entered into a question set to compute a single attribute value, and then auto-populates the attribute field with the value.

Within each attribute calculator, you can create multiple question sets. Depending on the shape of an item, for example, square vs. conical, volume can be calculated differently. Multiple question sets can resolve such differences.

Example: you can create an attribute calculator for a ”volume” attribute by creating a question set that contains length, width, and height measurements. Using the three variables, the calculator can determine a volume value.
