Option set

Meaning – The term option set, refers to a set of functions that may be supported by products that implement a particular architecture. A product may support any number of option sets or none. For each option set supported, all functions in that set are supported.

An option set is a type of field that can be included in an entity. It defines a set of options. When an option set is displayed in a form it uses a drop-down list control. When displayed in Advanced Find it uses a picklist control. Sometimes option sets are called picklists by developers.

Example of usage“Global options sets are used to set fields when there are numerous fields that use the same set of options. Before you can add a global option set to an entity, it must be created first.”
