A Drop-down List is a predefined list of options that users can choose from. In Allocadia, a Drop-down List helps track attributes for your marketing spend data. Throughout the fiscal year you may want to update your Drop-down list’s fields with new options, or edit them depending on how your activities are shaping up. We recommend using drop-down lists to help keep data clean and consistent for reporting purposes.

Note: If you have the Options Editable box checked for your Drop-down then any user can edit the fields for that list. This is only recommended for certain types of drop-downs where data entries may change frequently.
  1. On the Home Tab, click the Master / Custom Settings hyperlink in line with the desired Folder or Sub-folder
  2. On the Settings page, navigate to the Columns Tab under Template Setup
  3.  Highlight the Drop-Down List you wish to make changes to
    Tip: You can type the key word “drop down” in the search bar to filter by those fields only for improved navigation.
  4. Expand the side panel by clicking the arrow on the right side
    Tip: You can change the width of the side panel by holding down the three bars and dragging to your desired width.
  5. On the Field Details Panel, click the Edit Options hyperlink in line with the Type field
    Tip: Clicking the Import button also allows you to bulk add fields for Drop-Down Lists by copying and pasting the values. When importing, Allocadia will filter out duplicate options.
  6. Type the name of your new field in the text box and click Add
    Tip: For more options, hover over a field from the Drop-down List. The pencil icon allows you to rename the option, the red X will delete the option from the list while holding and dragging the three bars on the left side will allow you to move the option wherever you wish.
