Imagine a computer has space for two items in it

It must have at least one of category A but if it has 2 it cant have any of category B

Currently i use the drop down box scenario as there are options in each category and it doesn't matter which option is selected. There is then the multiple box to choose one/two etc

How do i configure the store to enforce the above using this new feature?

Also it would be handy is people could select a category as opposed to an Item  - if the customer chooses anything from cat a then they can only choose cat b

The system currently supports only rules that are based on the selection of an individual item. If you select item XYZ, then...

I believe that what you are suggesting is that the system be improved so that:

  1. A rule can be triggered by the selection of ANY item in a certain category
  2. A rule can be configured to disable selections in a second category if more than N items have been selected in the first category (this assumes that the first category has been setup for multiple selections)

Is this correct?

Hi, I know this posted a long long time ago, but this idea makes perfect sense. The conflict management rules should be set from a single page and these rules would apply to all BTO configurations....Rather than going through each BTO configuration and applying the rules.
 
Has anyone looked into this since? I think it's a major weakness of the conflict management tool as it is really time consuming to make sure the rules are updated after a product has been removed or added to BTO configurations.
