Dropdowns are a pre-set list of options that ensure your lab is using standardized spelling and naming conventions. Benchling allows users to create these dropdown lists to populate Registry schema metadata fields.

To add or remove options from the dropdown fields, navigate to the Registry Settings.

Next, select the Dropdowns option from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.

Select your Dropdown menu of interest and then click the "+" button to add a new option for your dropdown.

If you would like to edit or archive an existing option, hover over the option and two icons will appear on the right-hand side. Click the pencil to make changes to an existing option or click archive to remove it from the dropdown list.
