If you find a text field has the same set of options used several times, you may want to change it from an unmanaged text field to a field based on a managed list of elements.
When making this change, you have two options:
- Schema defines the list: if you want control of the order of the field options and the options do not need translation, consider placing the options in the Schema directly. Optionally use an Embedded Field to manage the same list everywhere its needed.
- Category defines the list. if you want editors to have the ability to bulk apply and search for items tagged with the option as well as for dynamic website functionality along with translation of the options, use a Category and its Keywords instead instead.
