Enable SuiteCRM users to edit specific dropdown values without the help of an Admin user. Empower your users by allowing specific users, such as mid-level managers, to edit their own dropdowns without having to slow down progress waiting for an Admin's attention.
The Dropdown Editor allows non-admin SuiteCRM users to edit the values of dropdown fields. This helps save time by allowing regular users manage specific dropdown fields without having to take the time of an admin user to do so.
Assign Non-Admin User to a Dropdown
- Find the "Dropdown Editor" module in the module menu and click the "New Dropdown Editor" action.
- Fill in the name field to describe who/why you're giving access.
- Select the Module and Field that you'd like to give access to. For example, if you wanted to give someone access to the Accounts Industry field, you would select "Accounts" as the module and "Industry" as the field.
