Introducing AmpUp, a Cloud-Based Enterprise Platform

Step 4 – Set up Dropdown Selections

There are two ways to do this, statically and dynamically. A static list is one that is defined by system administrators and rarely changes, for example, the names of U.S. states and the types of staff members. A dynamic list is a list that comes from a database table that can be updated in real-time by any number of authorized users and is formed on-the-fly and, by design, can be different from moment to moment. An example of a dynamic list are sale items whereby their quantities change as they are sold and restocked.

For a data field to support either type of dropdown list, all it takes is a single entry is added to one of AmpUp’s control tables:

These dropdown lists can be sorted or unsorted, and they can have an optional blank selection so that the data field can be cleared when necessary.
