Multi-Selection fields allow users
to select one or more values.
The following properties are defined in
- Default Values — Indicates the pre-selected values for this
- Allow Searching — Enables the
Value Find feature for the field on submit, transition, and
update forms. Users can enter search criteria (an entire word, a few letters,
or an asterisk) and then click search icon or press
Enter to perform the search. Results appear in a drop-down
list, from which users select a value for the field. This option also enables
users to search for values in the Rich Editable Grid.
Tip: If the field will contain 200 or more selections,
this option is recommended for best performance. If you do not allow searching,
fields that contain over 250 selection values are automatically set as
searchable in the Editable Grid.
- List Box — Enables users to select one or
more values from a drop-down list.
- Check Boxes — Enables users to select one or
more values from check boxes populated with selections listed in the Selections
- Height of List Box
— Indicates the number of rows that display values for the field
on forms. You can set the number of rows to display as appropriate for the
number of expected values for the field. This option is available for the
List Box and
Allow Searching options.
Note: If the number of selections exceeds this value, selections are
displayed in a dual list box instead of a single list box. However, this option
is not used in
SBM Work Center.
All list boxes are displayed side-by-side in submit, transition, and update
— Lists the selections for the field.
- Status — Indicates the selection's status. "Enabled" allows
users to select the value for the field. "Disabled" selections are not
available as new values. If a selection is disabled after it has been used as a
value by browser users, it appears as "(Disabled)" when users transition or
update items. Selections that are marked as "default" use the status inherited
from the workflow or parent project.
