About this task

You might want to add custom tables or remove tables you do not use.


  1. Navigate to sys_properties.list.
  2. Locate the glide.ui.create_task_type_option_list property.
  3. Edit the Value to add or remove tables.
    You can add any table that extends Task [task]. Use the table name, not the label. For example, you would enter change_request, not Change Request. Ensure the tables listed are separated by commas, with no spaces.
    The property value populates the task type selection list users choose from when they create a task from a checklist item. Note that users can only see task types for which they have the appropriate access roles.
