The existing selection lists or selection lists that have been created with the Picklist Editor can be used for a simple or compound selection.

Dependencies between configuration establish dependencies between SCHEDULES elements of the drop-down lists in each module. This allows linking the content of a selection list with the contents of another selection list. This means that we can control the content of a selection list displayed according to the option selected in another Selection List.

Below is an example to explain this functionality. Let's assume that we have added two lists to a menu as shown in the following table:

Table: Example selection list with dependencies




We want to control the contents of list 2 and only show content in this list 2 related to the list 1. For example, if we select VEGETABLES in list 1, we would like to see POTATOES, CABBAGE and GREEN PEAS in list 2.

  • We open the menu Picklist Dependency Setup as shown in the following figure.




  • We select the Organizations module and click on the button New Picklist Dependency to get to the next screen as shown below:




  • We are going to use this menu to define the dependencies. The Destination field is controlled by the Origin field. We select the relevant selection lists as shown in the next figure.




  • We click on Next to define the assignment of the contents of the selection list. The Next menu, as can be seen below, provides the option to choose fields of the selection list in relation to the other.

  • The Select Source Values button allows you to exclude the columns from the mapping. We can use an Origin field value to control the occurrence of multiple values ​​in the Destination field.




  • The header of the column contains the contents of list 1. Then it's time to uncheck column by column the fields that we do not want to see in the selection list 2 such and as shown in the example.




  • With this, we get to configure the drop-down lists (Picklist) of the desired form.
