Currently we have a situation where student courses are part of a value list. We use that value list as a drop-down list. Whenever a new course is added it is put into the value list.
It was suggested to me that I would be better creating a layout with all the course information and adding in new courses to the new layout, rather than the value list.
Then to use the course field in the new layout to populate the drop-down list. Is this an alternative without using value lists? All our drop-downs come from value lists. If it is possible, is it necessarily better practice?
