Build Simple Lists
Separate the naughty from nice

With the holiday season coming up soon, everyone is starting to work on their lists. Here at PMG, we’re no different. If you haven’t used Simple Lists before, you’re in for a real gift!

Simple Lists allow for creating and easily maintaining reusable lists without the need to create custom tables or write any kind of SQL. All you need to do is set up a list, and it becomes available for use on any form.

To turn a list into an object that can be used throughout the platform, follow these simple steps:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Lists.
  2. In the Lists interface, you’re able to select a list to edit or add/import a new list. In the example below, we created a list called Countries and populated it with a few values:
  3. Once your list is set up, you’re able to simply select it as the Datasource in any form control. For example, here it is used as a Select List:

And that’s all there is to it. With lists so easy to make now, Santa’s really got his work cut out for him this year!
