Multi-Level Drop-Down Lists

Hi,

I’m trying to add drop-down lists which ‘spawn’ sub-lists according to the entry chosen from the previous drop-down list.
For example, I would like to see a drop-down list with Hardware and Software listed. If I chose Hardware from this list then I am presented with another list of different types of hardware. If I then choose e.g. Server from the hardware drop-down list I’d like a new drop-down to be populated with aspects related to a Server, and so on.
I have searched your wiki and read through the user guide but cannot find any help related to this.

Please can you help?

Thanks a lot,

Jeremy

Have you considered using the “category” feature?
