Pre-defined pick lists

Some pick lists have a pre-defined set of selections, some of which can also be customized. Selections that can be changed/customized also have an Edit link for that pick list selection. For example you can edit a payment method's fields from the Payment Methods drop-down. These include:

To create a Pick list using a pref-defined set, do as follows:

  1. In Order Management Administration: click Settings > Preferences.
  2. On the System Preferences page, click the General tab.
  3. Click Pick Lists.
  4. On the System Wide Pick Lists page, select a pick list from the first drop-down.
    • For pick lists that have pre-defined choices, select a choice from the second drop-down. Click Add Item to add the selection to the list. Or, click Add All to add all the predefined selections that are listed in the second drop-down.

      For example, select ‘Countries’ from the first drop-down list, then select each country to include in that pick list, click Add Item, and then repeat for each country.

    • For pick lists that can be customized, click the Edit link in its row. The Label, Short Label, Description, and Code fields and Visible checkbox are in edit mode. See the table below for descriptions of the fields and buttons on this page.
      Note: Up to 10 custom shipping methods can be configured. When configured, the shipping method appears as drop-down list shipping method options in other Order Management modules, such as Retail Center.
    • Note: For shipping methods only, the tracking URL field is configurable. The {id} parameter in the URL reflects the tracking number that is assigned to the shipment. When a tracking URL is edited/changed, it's shown in bold text; default URLs are unavailable. Tracking URLs can be shown in all Order Management modules. For example, the tracking URL can appear in emails if added to the email template or in reports.
    • Click one of the following:
      • Update to save the information.
      • Cancel to ignore the changes.
      • Trash can icon (???) to delete the pick list.
