Service Manager


Example: Using a Cascading Validation List

This example illustrates how to trigger values from additional fields or a combo box (cascading validation list) by creating a service that uses a value based on the OwnerTeam field.

Before configuring this option, ensure that you have a standard user team called Desktop Support that it is populated with active employee names.

The OwnerTeam field must be previously configured to include team members. (See Working with Teams.)
