  4. What is an Unrestricted Drop-down Field Option?

Unrestricted drop-down fields are fields where you can insert new values to the drop-down field instead of using the initial set values for that field in your future CRM.

For example, your target CRM has a field named “Type” within the “Companies” object that contains a set of drop-down values. When you create a company record, you can insert a unique value for the “Type” field instead of choosing an available value from the drop-down list. In this case, some of the company “Type” fields’ values will differ from the “Type” field values in your target CRM.

If you prefer not to add these values to the “Type” list, you don’t have to. You can still save these values in your company records while migrating to your new CRM. Our tool will provide a solution that prompts you to map the company “Type” field values as shown below.

If you choose the keep original option, you can migrate the value for the field as-is, so you won’t be mapping it to an existing “Type” field value on the drop-down list within your target CRM.

By selecting the Keep original for all option, you can migrate all current values for the fields in question as they are.
