Managing Picklist Values

Organizational Level

Changes made to the organization level picklists will only automatically update existing projects that are set as dependent on the organization.

New projects will adopt any organization level picklist changes. 

Projects set as independent of the organization will need to be updated individually.   

Picklist values for custom fields are applied globally, this means there is only one list of values for a particular custom field. 

 

Project Level

Changes made to the project level picklists are specific for a single project.

New projects will adopt any organization level picklist changes. 

Projects set as independent of the organization will need to be updated individually.   

Picklist values for custom fields are applied globally, this means there is only one list of values for a particular custom field.
