I've set up a dynamic field to show values from another form ("Gewicht eintragen") and field ("Gewicht"): It's a list of checkboxes with weights a user has entered before.




Now, next to the weights I'd like to show also the date the user entered these values (this would be the field "Datum") - like in the mockup below - is this possible?



However, for calculations on another field I would still like to be able to use just the weight. So the date should be only displayed like a label but not be part of the value of the checkbox. Not sure if Formidable can handle such more complex situations?

You can definitely show the labels as you you want. See this: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/frm_setup_new_fields_vars/#kb-display-two-fields-in-a-dynamic-field. The prolem you'll have is that Dynamic fields are the wrong type of field if you want to use the field value in a weight calculation. The value of a Dynamic field is the entry ID of the related record, not a value you can use in calculations. Lookup fields will use the weight value.
