Re-enable previously hidden dropdown options.
I deleted some dropdown menu options because I wanted to temporarely hide them. But now I cannot find them back in the dropdown-menu editor. Do I have to go check the DB, because I cannot find a list of all dropdown options I've ever used...
Deleted drop-down field options cannot be recovered because of the way the database is set up. Drop-down fields are a completely separate table in the database, so deleting an option is like deleting a record. If you are looking for a way to customize which options are displayed in a certain field, you can use a parent/child relationship instead of a drop-down field to do so. The parent table would contain the options, so from the child table, you would be able to select those options using the relationship field. If you build the workflow in this manner, you can then use a Preferred Parent View at the form level to decide which options should be shown and which should be hidden. The link below contains information on how to assign a parent view to a relationship field.
Let us know if we can be of further assistance.
I'm still waiting for this feature. It's 2019 XD
Will you guys add the functionality to either hide or delete an option?
Once an option is deleted from a drop-down field, it will no longer be displayed, so there is not a comprehensive list of previously used values. If they have been removed, then you would need to access the table designer and add the choices back into the field settings, as there is not a way to temporarily hide options. Please let us know if you have further questions.
