Using Lists
 
Lists are a good way to help users indexing data know if the data they are setting for a field is good and can also speed up the manual indexing process. A list can be created by adding each value by hand or built from a database connected to ChronoScan.
While the manual list is fixed the database list will update according to the database selected.
 
Whenever a data field is linked to a list a dropdown menu will show up on the field as the field is selected as per the screenshot below:
 
Behavior of a field linked to a value list.
 
To change the behavior of the list and to link a list to a field the user have to open the field settings and go to the Help Values and Help List options. 
 
The list can be selected on the Help List option and the Help Values option will change the behavior of the list in the field.
