Add new option to Dropdown Custom Field through Butler

Hello there,

I am trying to get Butler to assign a new value to a Dropdown Custom Field. This isn't working if the dropdown doesn't already contain the input value as an option for the field.

eg: When "Buyer -> Owner" button is pressed, set custom field "Owner" to "{{%Buyer}}" (Owner is a dropdown custom field)prob.png

How can I add a new option to a Dropdown Custom Field through Butler if this functionality doesn't work (from another variable if this is possible)?


I am not wanting duplicate option values inside a dropdown, I just need to add the option if it does not exist already, then set the value (regardless if it previously existed or not).


Thank you so much!

I don't think it is available so I coded it just now. Add it to my collection of Add-on

Heya there,


Just trying to figure out how to use this add-on? I'm not sure how this exactly works here.
