Add List Items

  1. Open the Setup menu and select Custom Lists.
  2. Navigate to the profile page of the custom list to which you would like to add items.
  3. Scroll down to the List Items Section.
  4. Complete the following fields:
    • Name - Enter the name of the list item.
    • Value - The list value allows you to translate the list item to another value for reports or service integrations. For example, if you have sizes listed on your website as S/M/L, but they need to translate into LOCATE as Small/Medium/Large, you may enter the S/M/L characters as the Value and keep Small/Medium/Large as the name. This allows LOCATE to match the values properly between the two lists.
  • You may also leave the Value blank to be automatically populated to match the item Name.
  1. Click Add List Item.

The item should now appear listed below.
