Constant List

 

Disadvantages:

 

  • Can only be changed with a schema release
  • Inconsistencies with similar fields on other records

 

Advantages:

 

  • Encourages more careful planning of field values
  • Useful if values are not to be alphabetized

 

 

 

Dynamic List:

 

Advantages:

 

  • Changes can be introduced Live
  • Field value re-use is encouraged

 

Disadvantages:

 

  • Changes made live can surprise users
  • Changes affect other records that use the same list
  • Forced alphabetization of values
