Working with Smart Lists
Smart Lists are custom drop-down lists that users access from data form cells in Planning applications.
When clicking into data form cells, users select items from drop-down lists instead of entering data.
Users cannot type in cells that contain Smart Lists. Smart Lists display in cells as down arrows that
expand when users click into the cells.
For example, you can create a drop-down Smart List called Justification that provides selections for
Research, Customer Feedback, and Expansion. When users click into an Account named Reason (which is
associated with the Justification Smart List), they click the down arrow, which expands into a drop-down
list with these selections: Research, Customer Feedback, and Expansion. Users select a Smart List option
as a value for the cell.
Dimension Library to create Smart List dimensions and members, and assign properties.
Create a new dimension with Smart List selected as the Dimension Type.
Create members in the dimension. (The members are the items that display in the drop-down,
data form, or grid.)
Assign properties to the Smart List dimension and members. Assign a Label to the Smart List
and Smart List members.
