A single selection list is type of data element from which only one value can be selected. In the Data Inventory Manager, you can specify the default display option when the field is added to Data Entry Form templates in the Data Entry Form template designer. You may change display option during the design of the template.

To set how a single selection list displays:

  1. In the Customisation menu → Data Inventory Manager.
