Pinned topic Managing large number of large Choice Lists

‏2013-08-08T19:07:31Z |

Good day, is there is a way to manage large number of long choice list? For example I have a data in a certain format (database, csv, etc.) that represents available drop down selections for the classes I'm going to define. Is there is an easy way to import those values into the Filenet? In FEM you can type one-by-one, but that is not an option for ~100 lists with ~100 values each. Thank you in advance.

    Is there is a way to query the DB for the lists that might change? Ideas for managing the constant lists? Thank you.

    Hi Alexey,

    You can write a program and use the APIs, or use a packaged solution like http://www.bowenecmsolutions.com/choicelistmanager.html which allows drag and drop, copy paste, sort, export to delimited text or binary, etc. Product mentioned is site licensed and inexpensive.

    Hi, can you please also put a link to the API documentation? Thank you for your suggestion!
