Configure Picklist Dependencies

Picklist dependency setup offers you a seamless way of selecting only desired values from the picklist fields.

You can set-up dependency between two picklist fields (source and target picklist fields). By selecting a value in source picklist field, you’ll have complete control over the target picklist fields.

For instance, we will consider a real-time example. I have two different fields in Products Module. Manufacturer - source field, and Usage Unit - target field. When a value is selected in Manufacturer field, only Usage Units related to the selected manufacture should be displayed in a field.
Now let’s begin.

Picklist dependency offers you a seamless way of selecting only desired values from the picklist fields. You’ll need to set-up dependency between two picklist fields (source and target picklist fields).

What is the advantage of Picklist Dependency?
It gives you the flexibility to explicitly select appropriate values and eliminates the scope for erroneous and inaccurate data.

Configuring Picklist Dependency

Before we set up picklist dependency, we’ll have to select a module, a source field, and a target field. The entire process is made simple and straightforward.

Follow few simple steps to setup picklist dependency

  1. Click the User Menu on the top right corner
  2. Select Settings
  3. Click Configuration > Picklist Dependency
  4. Click  and select the necessary options

  5. All available values in source picklist field and target field are displayed. You can view all source picklist values in the header section.

  6. Now pick desired target field values under corresponding source field values (headers).

Note! Values in blue are selected and values in grey are unselected.

  1. Click Save

After successfully setting up picklist dependency, you can select a value in source field to view only corresponding values in the target field. From the above example, upon selecting a manufacturer, we should be able to see only the usage units related to it.

We’ve deployed picklist dependency on fields in Products module. In the create view or edit view of a product record, we will select a value in Manufacturer field; as a result, appropriate values will be displayed in Usage Units field

This gives you the flexibility to explicitly select appropriate values and eliminates the scope for erroneous and inaccurate data.
