Drop Down List With A Way To Insert Another Line Item If Not In List

Hi I just started working with Anaplan! I was hoping to find a way to add a new item to my list that I want to have as a drop down box in my module. Is this possible?

RE: Drop Down List With A Way To Insert Another Line Item If Not In List

If I understand your question correctly, the following is possible:      1) Create a List which you want to use in the dropdown box within your module e.g. "Country"      Add "France", "Germany", "Spain" to this List      2) Create a Module with a Line Item e.g. "Select a country"      Set the format of this Line Item to Type = 'List' and List = 'Country'      3) View the Module      Clicking on a cell against the "Select a country" line item will present a dropdown box containing "France", "Germany" and "Spain"      4) To add more countries to the dropdown, edit the "Country" list via [Settings][General Lists]      Insert new entries as required e.g. "Italy"      5) View the Module      Clicking on a cell against the "Select a country" line item will present a dropdown box containing "France", "Germany", "Spain" and "Italy" Note that you cannot add new entries via the View grid of the module - this must be done by editing the "Country" list directly.
