Configure tracker "Select" field values

To help users provide meaningful information, supply them with useful field values to choose from in the input fields in the tracker entry form.

Tip: Once a tracker has been created, you may:
  • Create one or more user-defined single-select or multiple-select fields.
  • Add predefined values to the fields. Remove values, if required.
  • Enable or disable fields.
  • Change the default values for fields.
  1. Click PROJECT ADMIN from the Project Home menu.
  2. Click Tracker Settings.
  3. From the list of existing trackers, click the name of the tracker that you want to configure.
  4. On the TRACKER FIELDS tab, click the name of the field whose values you want to edit.
  5. On the Edit Field page, set up the field values you want users to see when they create a tracker artifact.
    • To define a new value, click Add.
    • To rename a value, edit the existing text. If you rename a value, the value is renamed in all existing artifacts.
    • To remove a value, check the box and click Delete. If you delete a value, the value is changed to None in all existing artifacts.
    • Select DEFAULT VALUE to set which option will be chosen if the user makes no selection. When you move a tracker artifact from one tracker to another, the default field value is the value that comes along.
    • When you edit the values of the Status field, you are also asked to describe what each value's status means, as shown in the Values section of the Edit Field page. This status meaning is used in Advanced Search to define which values are returned when searching for open or closed artifacts.
    • As always, when you create a new tracker, the default value for the 'Priority' field is set as '4 - Low'. However, you can change the default value by editing this configurable single select field, 'Priority'. You cannot delete or disable the Priority tracker field.
    • When you change the tracker fields, the values in the existing artifacts remain unchanged.
  6. Click Move Up or Move Down to order the list the way you want it.
  7. Click Save Field.
All values are now available in the selection menu for the field.
