In this video, learn how to add text placeholders to provide areas for adding text, and use table input options like pop-up menus to control input and make data input easier for the user.
- [Narrator] When creating a template…you'll want to make it easy for users to input data.…You can save them a lot of time and trouble…by using a certain format we're going to explore…in this movie with our Leaf and Mortar budget file 0902…if you're catching up.…We're going to go to the income details tab up here.…Where we're taken out all of the data…that a user might input.…And instead of having them type out the months of the year…January, February, March, etc.…we can give them those options…say on a pop up menu that they can select.…
That way they can save a lot of time…and a lot of typing.…So, let's go to cell A2.…And go to the cell tab here in the inspector…where we see the data format set to automatic.…Click this drop down and change it to pop up menu.…There it is.…With it selected you can see…it comes with three items by default.…We're going to need 12 items.…But we can start with item one…by double clicking we highlight it…so we can type right over it, January.…Now you can double click item two…and type in February.…
