Team,

Has someone done a customization to add formula editor column in product configurator options that allows us to add some useful/additional information on options level? Or is this in current product roadmap?

The current Qty Required column is just quantity of component/option that is used mainly for stock consumption/costing but I need additional information such as cutting dimension to tell shop floor people at what exact length and width of material they need to cut, like in the example below. 

I have tried using formula editor on Attributes but each option in the configurator has different type of information to be added so ideally it’s a column next to each option.

Unfortunately you can’t write a formula for an attribute but you can use a formula to populate the configuration key, key description, and transaction description.  You can enter the formula for the configuration key or use a <FORMULA> “attribute” to show the data during configuration (I do this all the time to see the field values) and then use the Field assigned to the <FORMULA> to populate the configuration keys,

 

The key, key description, and trans description are store in the config results table.
