This setting determines whether lookup table records are selected from a drop-down list or from a search module.
- Select items from a drop-down list—Select this option if your organization always wants to display lookup table items using a drop-down list, no matter how many items there are.
- Select items from Lookup Module when there are more than 100 items—This option is recommended if there may be 100 or more items to display. If there are fewer than 100 items to display, the items will show in a drop-down list. If there are 100 or more, a search module with auto-suggest capability is displayed instead.
Note: The setting that you choose is the default selection for lookup items. The default item selection could still be overridden by developers for specific fields in the design.
Setting User Selection Options
For certain TeamConnect records, a field may require selection of a TeamConnect user (to populate the field). For example, when adding an assignee to a project or when adding a user to a group account. The User Selection block of Admin Settings>User Interface determines whether user records are selected from a drop-down list or from a search module.
- Select users from drop-down list—Select this option if your organization does not have too many user names to display in a drop-down list. If your organization has a large number of users, performance can be affected if the drop-down list setting is selected. It may also be inefficient for users to sift through the list of names to find the appropriate user or users to select.
- Select users from User Search Module—This option is recommended if there are too many users to effectively display in a drop-down list.
