It would be sweet if we could create ui-only picklist and multipicklist fields where the picklist entry options could be generated from rows in a model.

(apologies if this is already an idea.. I didn't find it in a brief search)

A similar request: when you override field metadata and you choose picklist types, be able to generate entries from rows in a model.

And the current picklist entries should auto-populate in the builder when you're overriding metadata. That would make it much easier to add/remove a single option.

Matt and Jack,

You can now do this as of the Brooklyn GA release! Ui-only picklist and multipicklist fields can be populated manually, through rows in a model, or through a snippet. You also have those same options when overriding the metadata of a picklist or multipicklist.

Thanks!
Amy
