Creating a new Enhanced Custom List
Select Enhanced Custom List from the Administration menu under Event and Risk
At the very top of the page, select Create new list
Start by entering the name of the list, and the name you wish to see displayed to others (they can be the same if required).
You now create the fields you wish to capture for each entity on your list.
In this example, we are creating a list of our Service Users and wish to capture their:
- First Name
- Known allergies
- Date of Birth
Using the Add field we work through our list. For example:
Name - this is the title of the field you'll be capturing. E.g. First Name.
Type - what sort of data is being captured? In this example it is text, however, it might be numerical, a date, email address, boolean (Yes/No), etc. Selecting the right one means you can ensure the right type of data is being recorded.
Mandatory? - if yes is selected then you must enter information into this field when adding a new entity (E.g. a new service user).
Unique - can multiple entities with the same information be entered into our new enhanced custom list? In our example it's very likely service users may have the same first name so we'll select No.
Include in search text? - when this list is added to a form will the user be able to search the list using this field.
