Managing Choices in the Option Set
Once you created an option set, you can add choices to it.
To add choices:
1. Go to the information page of the option set and click the Structure tab.
2. Click the toolbar action . The Manage Choices window opens.
3. By default, the Context field shows the current context. You can add choices from the options defined in another context by searching for and selecting that context.
4. Select the tab for the type of options to select from: design or sales.
5. The table lists the options from the option pool of the selected context. For each option, the associated choices appear in the Choices column. You can filter the table by selecting Options with Choices Selected and Options without Choices Selected from the pull-down list at the top of the table. Alternatively, you can view all options available.
6. Select the choices to add to the option set. As you select an option, the right panel opens to allow you to select the desired choices. You can select all or only some choices from that option.
To select all choices, click the checkbox at the top of the option list.
The Manage Choices window does not display the merged choices that were added from a lower-level option set. If you wish to modify those choices, you need to remove them from the merged option set. For more information on removing the merged choices, see Removing Merged Choices and Rules.
7. After adding choices of one type of options, you can select the tab for another type.
8. After you selected all choices, click Apply to add the selected choices to the option set.
9. When finished, click OK to return to the information page of the option set.
