    How to change the "code (description)" Alma controlled vocabulary drop-down display

    • Product: Alma



    How do we change the "code (description)" in the Alma controlled vocabulary drop-down display?


    The standard display for controlled vocabulary is "code (description)" and is not configurable.


    Often the code and description value are different, so it displays that way so that the user can see what the code means.
    Selecting an option in the Metadata Editor (MDE) will copy only the code.


    To avoid duplication within this field, you can make the code different than the description.
