What is the EDM Predefined Macro?
The Predefined Macro allows you to create a single- or multi-dropdown with a predefined text set. See Space & Global Configuration for more information on how to define text sets.
It is also possible to filter for these predefined macros in a page property report macro. See Filtering with the Page Property Report Macro for further information.
The Parameters can be set differently for each predefined Macro.
Input Field Type
Choose a set
Here you can choose one of the predefined dropdown text sets that you have defined in the space or global configurations.
After choosing your predefined text set, you can preselect the option/s for the dropdown that will be displayed 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.
