Dropdowns are a pre-set list of text options that ensure your organization is using standardized naming conventions. Benchling allows users to create these dropdown lists to populate Registry schema metadata fields.
To add or remove options from the a dropdown, navigate to the Registry Settings.
Next, select the Dropdowns option from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen.
Finally, to add options to your selected dropdown, you can either:
- Select "Options +" to add options individually.
- Select "Import Options" to add a line-separated list of options for bulk import.
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.
