    Hello Matthieu,

    Here are three approaches:

    (1) Keep it simple and at one-level, that is one option with choices “PREMIUM MAPLE”, “PREMIUM OAK”, “REGULAR MAPLE”, “REGULAR OAK”

    (2) Use the Rule Builder to set up rules to conditionally show/hide choices. With this you will want 2 options in the configuration to capture:

    • PREMIUM or REGULAR
    • the material items for “PREMIUM MAPLE”, “PREMIUM OAK”, “REGULAR MAPLE”, “REGULAR OAK”

    You would then have rules on option 1 with actions to show/hide the choices for option 2. For example, if PREMIUM is selected option 1 then show “PREMIUM MAPLE” & “PREMIUM OAK” and hide “REGULAR MAPLE” & “REGULAR OAK for option 2.

    (3) Use the Rule Builder to set up rules to have the system select the required material. With this you will want 3 options in the configuration to capture:

    • PREMIUM or REGULAR
    • MAPLE or OAK
    • the material item for “PREMIUM MAPLE”, “PREMIUM OAK”, “REGULAR MAPLE”, “REGULAR OAK”

    You would then have rules on options 1 and 2 with actions to set the choice for option 3. For example, if PREMIUM and MAPLE are selected for options 1 and 2 then set “PREMIUM MAPLE” for option 3.

    Thank you,
