Using Enum with Data Slice Whilst Allowing Other Values

Is it possible to use Enum (as a dropdown) with a Data Slice whilst allowing other values to be entered?

Are you reading values for your dropdown with a Valid_If formula or with fixed Enum values?

(Colin) #3

With a Valid_If Formula. Fixed Enum values are not possible (?).

If your column type is Enum and you try to read values with the Valid_If, you don’t have that option to add more options. You can only do that if you use Ref field.

I see. But using Ref has a higher performance cost over Enum?

I wouldn’t say high, but yes a little when syncing the data.
