The Lists of Values


Certain fields in forms offer users a choice of values in a grid

  • The list of values is built around a parent query that accesses a set of standardized data from the database.
  • You can configure the grid.
    • Selection of columns displayed using the parent query fields used to define the list of values.
    • Only for Ticket forms, selection of filters that enable users to restrict the display of possible values when running a search on equipment or services.

Examples

  • Display a list of values for the Service field.
    • Display in the form: Hover over the field and click List open icon.png.
               Value list parameter - User view.png
    • Configuration of the grid: Click Circle Edit icon.png.
               Value list parameter - Grid setup.png
  • In Ticket forms, propose several filters for displaying equipment only for recipients, their department or their location.

Notes

  • Only user profiles authorized to edit display presentations can configure a list of values. Open url.png See User Profiles > Edit rights and display rights.
  • They can add fields manually to the parent query, as long as they are authorized to edit display presentations. Open url.png See User Profiles > Edit rights and display rights.
    • Fields are displayed with their alias (or logical name).
    • If the alias is not specified, the physical field name will appear.

      example  

      • Alias: Phone, Physical Name: PHONE_NUMBER
      • Alias: Serial Number, Physical Name: AM_ASSET.SERIAL_NUMBER

Characteristics specific to versions 2016 and earlier

The configuration of lists of values in versions 2016 and earlier is different.

  • Edit rights are assigned to each user profile in the module associated with the menu item using the filter. Open url.png See User Profiles.
  • You can only configure filters in Quick Call forms, in the Equipment and Service fields.

  • The Requestor field is specified ==> The Equipment of Requesting Person filter will appear.
  • The Requestor field is not specified ==> The filter will not appear.
