      1. In the fourth column, press the Down Arrow key in the autocomplete field, and then select a data type that has at least one page list defined.

      2. Click the Gear icon.

      3. Select Is this a data reference?.

      4. In the Select the source list, select the name of a page list.

      5. Click Submit.

    • To define new fields:
      1. Click + Add field to [field group list].

      2. Configure the field, by giving it a name, type, and display mode.

        For more information about the supported types of fields, see Supported display modes by field type.
