Record Type vs. Picklist Matrix


SnapShot has just added the Record Type Picklist Matrix which allows users to view a Record Type vs. Picklist matrix for selected objects in the Asset SnapShot.  This matrix can be saved in a CSV format.


To access the Record Type Picklist Matrix, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to the Asset Snapshot


     2. Click on the Options Menu


     3. Select the Record Type Picklist Matrix option



     4. Once selected, the Generate Record Type Picklist Report dialog box will appear.      



     5. To use the matrix, first select an object from the list on the left side of the dialog box. Note: if an object is not highlighted, it means that it has neither a picklist nor a      record type tied to it. 



     6.  To populate the matrix, simply select an Object from the left hand box. Once selected, a list of Object fields will populate the first column, followed by the      picklist values in the other columns.  The record types are displayed across the top of the matrix. 

     Note: ** denotes the default value.  Also, if you see red, it means that there are picklist values present for the specific record type.




     7.  You can also export the results out to a CSV file by clicking on the Export To CSV button on the bottom of the dialog box.
