How to Create Dropdown Fields Using Saved Lists

To ensure consistency and control in your dropdown fields, you might want to limit the available options to a predefined set. By using a saved list, you can restrict the input for some dropdown fields to only specific values. In addition to offering a method to restrict input options for dropdown fields to specific values, saved lists in Vymo serve a vital purpose in enhancing efficiency and consistency across various modules. By utilizing saved lists for dropdowns, you can avoid repetitive configurations for common dropdown options that are applicable to multiple modules. This approach streamlines the setup process and ensures uniformity in dropdown choices throughout the application.
