Best practices for value lists

Question asked by dsimonson on Jun 5, 2015


Best practices for value lists


My solution needs a lot of value lists, and many of these lists will need to be modified by the users.  For example: common medications, common techniques, etc.  I see as part of my orientation process having new users fill in these lists.

What is better - to create the value lists as tables (such as Meds, or Techniques, etc.) or figure out how to have them as custom lists?  I see the problem with tables is that they are more difficult to add records to on the fly - for example if a user pulls down a list and their choice isn't on it and they want to quickly add it.

So - any advice?  Tables or custom lists?  Thanks.
