The selection options that you can add to a Document property consist of Domain tables. Think of the Status of a document or the Type of file. A domain table can only be linked to the following Data types:                        
  • Lookup: a single choice from a drop-down menu.                             
  • Lookupmultiple: multiple selections from a drop-down menu.                             
  •  Autocomplete: a single choice that comes up based on the text you enter in a search box.   
The following five default domain tables are available in Docstream: Register ListStatusTypeMessagePurpose and DataMedium
