It doesn't matter if that observation is willed or not.

If you are saying the result observed is independent of whether that observation was willed, then I agree. "Will" has no bearing at all.

Something can be caused and not be deterministic

Of course. Perhaps I misunderstood you. It sounded like you were asserting we could will the outcome of an observation in QM. That is absolutely false. If that's not what you were asserting, then I don't really know where you were going with QM allowing for will to influence an outcome. Any influence of QM is purely probabilistic. Not willed.
