Refer to the table below for a description of each list type.
|Flat list||Flat lists contain list items with no hierarchy. For example, you can use a flat list for information that does not require structure at multiple levels, such as transactional data.|
Simple lists contain list items with a parent/child hierarchy. For example, you can use a simple list to organize employees in different departments. Drag and drop list items to create a hierarchy in one list.
Note: You can only add data to child list items.
|Composite hierarchy||Composite hierarchies contain multiple lists that each roll up to a parent list. For example, the G3 Location list rolls up to the G2 Country list, and the G2 Country list rolls up to the G1 Region list.|
|Numbered list||Numbered lists contain list items with unique identifiers. For example, you can use numbered lists to manage duplicate names in a model.|
|List subset||List subsets contain list items from larger lists. For example, if you have a long list, you can create a list subset to target specific list items.|
Use appropriate name conventions for your lists. For example, if your list contains a group of employees, name it Employees.
Create your list in General Lists in the model settings bar.
