Populate a category select list in a datamaster from data entered in another datamaster

Hi - hoping someone can help.


I am building a prototype with a datamaster, which has amongst other fields, a field which is a multicategory type. Rather than manually adding values for that field, I would like it to be populated using values input into a text field in a different datamaster. In other words the values for the multicategory field in datamaster 1 would be those values entered into the text field of datamaster 2. I can't see how to do this - can anyone help please?

1. Choose the 'multi category' option for the Data Master field.

2. Select the Field and click the 'gear' icon, which will open a new dialog.

3. In the dialog, click the '+' icon to add new values to the multi category field.

Hi, the question is "In other words the values for the multicategory field in datamaster 1 would be those values entered into the text field of datamaster 2." I do not understand which, in the answer, are datamaster 1 and datamaster 2.

I can't even get to the "5. Choose the Data Master field for the value of the multi select list." pop up screen.

Could you please explain in more details?

Thank you

Claudio

I'm not sure exactly what the person asking the question was referring to regarding the different Data Masters, but which step in the process we outlined in the answer is confusing? What happens when you try to get to step 5?

Take your time to carefully read and uderstand what the person is asking for in the original question, then you will be able to answer. Don't worry about step 5, it wil come later.
