ActiveControl has long offered the capability for customers to create custom fields at (1) Transport Form, (2) Business Task and more recently (3) ActiveControl Project screen level.

Over the years, numerous customers have raised two Requirements to Basis Technologies:

i) the ability for the value selected in one standard or custom field dropdown to drive the values seen in another custom field dropdown

ii) the ability to have a four-level hierarchy within ActiveControl, to cater for scenarios such as:

Programme > Project > Business Task > Transport Form Release > Sprint > Business Task > Transport Form Wave > Release > Business Task > Transport Form

As such, ActiveControl 8.50 introduces a new Dynamic Dropdown custom field type to enable customers to achieve both of these requirements.

Figure: In this simple example, a Country ‘Dynamic Dropdown’ is linked to a parent source ‘Region’ dropdown field. Country values are linked to specific Region value

Figure: As a result, the Country dropdown only shows the relevant values for the Region selected.

Configuration Steps

More details on this feature – along with the configuration – can be found in this online Change Article.
