Input Screen


  • In order to input/edit a Data Item, the editing permission at the Task must have been set to “Editable”
  • When the Fixed Choice list is selected in the Type of data source, you can import/export the Options master file from the [Add-on file] button
    • In [Export Add-on file], the contents specified on the edit screen of individual choices can be saved as an XML format file
    • In [Import Add-on file], the contents of the XML file in the specified format are read and the Choice ID/Label is set
    • You can use the choice edit screen as a simple Options XML editor to create an Option Master XML file
    • The exported Option master (XML file) can be used to set Select-type Data Items in other Apps, etc.
  • By selecting a String-type Data Item as the data source, data entered during the flow can be dynamically specified as an option (M208)
  • When using “Get choice list via HTTP” or “App-shared Add-on file” the options can be updated without editing the apps that use them (M319)
  • Column count determines how many options are displayed on a single line for radio button and check box-type selections
  • Selecting a dependent parent will restrict the choices in the child Data Item depending on what has been selected in the parent Data Item (M410)
    • The Choice ID of the options in the parent Data Item is linked to the matching leading digit(s) of the Choice ID in the child Data Item
  • The maximum number of characters that can be set for Choice ID and Label is respectively 1000 characters
  • The maximum number of choices that can be defined is 1000 when defining choices within the App
  • When the sub-type of Select type is “radio button/select box/check box”, an upper limit will be applied for the number of items displayed on the Task Operating screen
    • Do not display more than 1000 choices
    • If there are more than 1000 choices, use Search Select
    • Care must be taken when defining choices via HTTP or using Options Master (XML)
  • When acquiring the options via HTTP or from the Option master (XML), the maximum number of options that can be read is 150,000
  • The maximum size of Options Master file (Add-ons) that can be registered is 20MB
  • When registering the Options master (XML), if the option is violating the upper limit of Select-type Data Item, it will result in an error
