SuiteCRM Dynamic dropdown configuration

As you can see, you have a list of Regular users (2), and multiple options (3) to allow selected user ability to add new values to selected dropdown lists.

Similarly you can revoke (4) the right to add new values.

Add row (1) will give you set of Dropdown to choose Regular user, options of all dynamic dropdown type fields and a Revoke button to delete the row.

As you save the settings, selected non-admin user will have same + sign for allowed fields, as you as admin see for all Dynamic Dropdown fields.

P.S. List of Dynamic fields states (Module name – Field Name) so you know the field belongs to which module.
