Edit a Pick List Item

If a pick list is incomplete, you can add new items to it for users to select.

Important: New entries added to a pick list must be mapped to an existing parent NEMSIS value.

To edit an existing pick list item
  1. From any page, go to Administration: Pick Lists.

  2. From the table, select the pick list that contains the item you want to edit. That pick list's page opens.

  3. For DOH Administrators, from the NEMSIS version drop-down, select the NEMSIS version of the pick list you want to add the items to.

  4. Locate the appropriate item and click its associated Edit link. The Edit Item: [Item Name] window opens.

  5. Make your changes.

    Note: Fields may be pre-populated with default values if this was configured by your department manager. These values can be changed as needed in the same fashion as entering data manually.

    • For Description, enter the name of the item as it should appear to users.

    • For Long Description, enter a detailed description of the item.

    • For Narrative Text, enter the sentence, statement, or simple text that should appear when this pick list item is added as a narrative variable for insertion into the narrative.

    • For Sort, select the position (in relation to other items in the list) in which this item should appear.

  6. Click Save.
