Tech Tip
Managing Drop-down Lists in GAGEtrak 7

Drop-down lists in GAGEtrak, such as the Current Location field in the Gages -> Information tab, can become cluttered with duplicates, misspellings or other unnecessary entries:
In GAGEtrak 7, it's a breeze to clean up these lists. Navigate to Setup -> Dropdown List Management and locate the record for the list you want to modify:
Here, row 4 contains a misspelled value (Inspectoin). Click the grey box to the left of that value to select it. From the Tools menu, click Delete. The program asks if you want a new value to replace the deleted value:
In this instance, click Yes. The Select New Status window will open. Select "Inspection" to replace the misspelled value you are deleting:
Click OK and close the window. The accurate value has now replaced the misspelled value throughout all records.

Administrators can lock the list to prevent future incorrect entries by selecting Cannot add items from the AddItemBehaviour field. If you would prefer to allow for list additions, but want the user to be prompted to confirm the action (for the sake of double-checking spelling, for instance), you would select Ask to add items from the AddItemBehaviour field.

Cleaning up and locking drop-down lists is a great way to prevent mistakes and speed up data entry.

We encourage you to explore the additional capabilities in your GAGEtrak software and as always, keep an eye out for future Tech Tips.
