Unlike option sets, global options sets can be reused across several entities. Global options sets are used to set fields when there are numerous fields that use the same set of options.

Before you can add a global option set to an entity, it must be created first. Let’s assume we want to create a global option set for a field named ‘Topics’ where users can select from the following options: Money, Time Management, Equity, and Transportation.

The following steps would be required.

1. Select the solution that you would like to customize.

6. Click on the + sign to add the option set values
