What are Dropdown Values?
Dropdown values are the values that appear in the drop-down lists. You are able to select a list to modify an existing list in the field configuration page.
Access steps are shown below:
How to modify an existing list?
To modify an existing list, you will be required to select a list from the dropdown menu. You will be presented with two types of Lists:
- Default Lists: These are the pre-defined lists. The Default lists are used for drop down values in the default configuration for Appogee HR. Any default elements you keep for your implementation of Appogee HR will make use of these List names, and you can customise the values to choose between here.
- Custom Lists: These are the lists you have created within the Employee Profile Configuration. For example, if you create a new field within Employee Profile Configuration, and set it to have field type Dropdown you will be presented with a Configure button. When you click that you get a choice of using an existing list or to create a new list. If you choose Create New List you will be prompted to enter a new list name (which must be unique). This list will then appear as a Custom list for review and amendment in this area.
You can make the following modification to the drop-down list:
- Add New value
- Delete/restore a value
- Sort the list view
If you deleted a value, but now wish to restore the list value then you can click on the restore button as shown in the screenshot below:
You can also sort the list view, either by item name or manually.
