Single Selection Field Options

Single Selection fields let users make one selection for the field.



Manage values by adding, deleting, or reordering them. Click within each row to modify existing values.

Weights give a numeric value to each selection that can be useful for Trend reports, backlog views, and Summation fields.

You can use the default weight of 100 for each value or specify different weights for each value as needed. By default, "none" values are treated as 0. If you want "none" values to be treated as a value other than 0, change the value in the Weight for "(none)" value setting.

To manually reorder selections in the list, use the Move up and Move down controls or click the Value or Weight column headings, and then verify that "User defined" is selected in the End-user display order list. You can also choose one of the following display orders:

For fields in primary tables, you can include or exclude a value by selecting the Enabled check box, or you can select Enable all or Disable all from the More list to include or exclude all values.

To manage a large number of selections, use the Import and Export options in the More list. For details, refer to Importing Selection Field Values.

To delete a value, select the value and click Delete. In the dialog box that appears, if you want to delete the value even if it is in use, uncheck the Prevent the deletion if the value is in use option. All references to the value are deleted as well.

If you delete this field and later restore it, the values you specify are also restored. For more information, see Deleting and Restoring Fields.

Tip: You can use shortcut keys to edit and navigate values. For more information, see Selection Field Shortcut Keys.


Search & Query

Note: If a Single Selection field has 1,000 items or more, the Advanced Search ignores the On lookup or query-At-runtime forms setting, and instead displays it as a searchable field.
