Chapter 9. Working with Custom Fields > Using and Editing Value Lists

Using and Editing Value Lists

Value lists are a way for project managers to define a list of values from which field values can be chosen. The ability to pick from a predefined list of values is important, particularly when the field will be used for filtering, sorting, or grouping a view. When the field used for such purposes has all hand-entered values, misspellings can possibly invalidate the sort or grouping. This can leave tasks or resources out of the filter. Selecting from a predefined list ensures that there are no misspellings or typographical errors to cause filter errors.

Creating a Value List

Click Tools, Customize, Fields from the menu bar.

Select the field for which you want to define a list.

Click the Value List button.

Enter the values into the grid.

Use the Up and Down buttons to move values into the desired position in the list.
