Another feature of the core workflow screens is the direct input of basic data, which is usually maintained on separate setup screens. On a core workflow screen, all fields with an available LOV and where the values of the LOV have been defined on a setup screen provide this feature.

When entering new data in these fields, you can either use the LOV to select existing pre-defined values from the list, or you can manually enter the value in the field. The software checks whether the entered value was already defined on the setup screen or not. If it’s a new value, a message appears: ‘You have entered an unknown value. Do you wish to continue?’. When you click Yes and then save the record, the software will automatically add the new value to the setup screen.

Your access rights given by the assigned role determine whether you are allowed to create new values or just to select existing values from the LOV. If the role allows you to add new records on the setup screen, you can also add the new values on the core workflow screen.
