What is the EDM Not Predefined Macro?
The Not Predefined Macro allows you to create a dropdown where you can select a single or multiple options from a not predefined set (as the name suggests). You can create your options directly in the macro dialog. This is the main difference to the other macros. The set you define is only available for the macro in which you define it.
It is also possible to filter for these not predefined macros in a page property report macro. See Filtering with the Page Property Report Macro for further information.
These Parameters can be set differently for each Not Predefined Macro. You can’t preselect a dropdown value in the macro dialog for this macro.
Input Field Type
Text Input Field
Here you can create your set with the desired options for the dropdown. The different set options are separated by a comma.
Here you will be able to select the option/s you want to be shown on the page. If left blank, then no option will be preselected.
If checked, the dropdown will be displayed as a multi-dropdown, which allows you to select multiple options at the same time.
If check, the dropdown will include a blank option that can be selected.
This checkbox allows you to lock the dropdown (users won’t be able to change the value) if it is displayed in a Page Property Report or an Excerpt Include macro.
Here you can select groups which are allowed to change the values of the dropdown. If left blank then only users with edit permission are allowed to change the value.
Number Input Field
The dynamic macro width can be overwritten as long as it is not less than the calculated width. If the value is 0, the dynamic width will be used.
