display drop down for automatic table filter

When you use manual filter options, it shows a drop down unless the list is longer than 25 (by default). However, if you use automatically populated options, it always displays a text box with auto-complete, regardless of how few options there are.

Is there a way to display a drop down without resorting to manually creating the filter options?


It looks like your filter is based on a reference field? If that’s the case, there isn’t a way to display a drop down filter without manually creating the filter. Filters on reference fields tend to always use an auto-complete (filters on picklist or multi-picklist fields will use the dropdown unless there are too many items).
