Say hello to the new Collection field: Option.
With Option, you can define a list of choices a Content Editor can pick from a dropdown. So you don't have to create a new Collection to reference, or type in the values for every item. Amazing!
Here's how you might use it: Say you have an Articles Collection, and want each Article to have an associated Category.
You’ll create a new field in the Collection Settings and select the Option field:
Then define the list of options Content Editors will see in the Category dropdown:
Now, when you or a client are editing an Article, you can select a Category:
And display it on your site:
And if you later edit the name of a Category option in the Collection Settings, every instance of that Option will update automatically, across your site. And, just like other fields, Option fields can be used to filter Dynamic Lists.
