How can I add a new item to a value list?

You can use the Add Value button in the toolbar when you work with the metadata card. This function is available only if it has been specified in the value list properties that regular users can add new values to this list.

If you are an M-Files system administrator, go to Value Lists in M-Files Admin, right-click the desired value list, and select Properties in the context menu. Click the Contents... button and add a new item by clicking the New Item button. If you do not have administrator rights, check with the system administrator that the Allow users to add new values to this list check box is checked in the properties of the value list.

If the value list is based on an object type, the value list is edited through the object type. In this case, the new object type is created using the M-Files Desktop user interface.
