List of cars, employees, customers, suppliers, locations, projects, cost centers, types of cases …
We agree that it is worth being able to include such lists on forms in the document and case workflow processes.
Of course, and earlier it was possible using the “Selection list” plugin, which allows you to add a field containing a defined list, from which the user, when filling in the form, selects a value. In many cases, this functionality was sufficient.
However, there are at least a few situations where Dictionaries will be a better choice than a simple picklist. For example, when:
- the list changes quite often,
- the same list is used in several different processes,
- in addition to the value, the list items should also have a description.
