Manage Dropdown List Options

The Manage Dropdown List Options Admin Tool can be used to edit and update the Dropdown Lists for Standard and Custom Dropdown Fields in CMap. The tool enables existing Dropdown List options to be renamed and archived if they are no longer required.

  • Access Dropdown List Options
  • Edit Dropdown List Options
  • Add new Dropdown List Options
  • Archive Dropdown List Options

Access Dropdown List Options

1. From your Dashboard, head to CMap's Admin area by clicking on the  icon, found on the right-hand side of the page. Under the heading CONTENT select Dropdown List Options.

2. Select the appropriate dropdown list that you would like to edit.

3. You will see a list of available options that will appear in the dropdown list.

Any Standard CMap dropdown lists will show here, as well as any Dropdown Lists created in the Custom Field Manager. Click here to learn more.

Edit Dropdown List Options

You can edit an existing dropdown option by clicking the  icon. You can edit the Name as required and click Save.

To reorder items in the list, click on the item and move the cursor to where you would like it to appear. Drop it and the list will be reordered.

Add Dropdown List Options

To add a new item to the dropdown list, enter the appropriate name into the text box at the bottom of the grid and click Add Item.

Archive Dropdown List Options

To archive an item, click the icon. CMap will ask you to confirm that you wish to archive the item. Click Yes to archive it.

To view archived items, click the Show Archived Items link at the top of the grid.  If you want to restore any of them, click Restore.
