  4. Create list properties

Model builders use list properties to store additional information relating to lists, such as formulas and data tags. For example, you can use a list property to create display names for list items in numbered lists.

Create any lists you might need in General Lists in the model settings bar.

To create a list property:

  1. Select General Lists in the model settings bar.
  2. Select a list, then select Open.
  3. Select Properties > Insert.
  4. Type a name for the list property. Create extra list properties by typing each list property on a new line.
  5. Select Before or After to add the list property before or after an existing list property in the list. Select Start or End to add the list property to the start or end of the list.
  6. Select OK.

Refer to the table below for a description of each column in Properties.
