Custom Field Capabilities

Can a custom field have the same capabilities as say the category field?

What I would like is to be able to have sub custom fields like you can with the category field when you add the :: (double colon) in between entries.

Nope. Custom fields have three types: text, single select, multi select. That's it.

That is what I thought but wasn't sure if there was some coding you could use in them like you can with the query: option to look up information and enter it for you.

KACE needs to add it as a product enhancement then....lol

Its not exactly what your looking but maybe it can help.

Yeah I've read that one and am working on a couple of uses for it but wasn't really what I wanted to do overall. Instead I just had to create two separate single select custom fields as a work around.

There is an enhancement about this but for now....

you could populate a cusatom field with values like


just make sure they are sorted -- if you use that FAQ then use an order by. E.g. could have a list you create in assets and query it from the custom field

navigating a long list like this isn't awesome but can be made a bit easier with keystroke navigation. And who knows when it gets implemented maybe you'll be a step ahead?
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
