How do I provide different custom fields option values, depending on the project in use ?

I have two separate projects that I want to use the same workflows, screens & fields but I want to display specific custom fields option values, depending on which project is in context.


For example - project 1 uses a custom field displaying option values A, B, C and project 2 wants to display D, E, F.  And neither project wants to see each other's values.


I want to keep the same workflows, screens & we as an organisation want projects to work in a consistent / shared approach.


Thanks in advance,

Hi Matthew,

Welcome to the community.

I think you want to create separate custom field context per project.

Did you have a chance to see custom field contexts mentioned here?


Sorry @Tuncay Senturk _Snapbytes_ your suggestion worked well...I now have two projects running the same workflow, with differing custom fields options value.  Really useful.
