The Answer dictionary allows you to enter fields that are available within TouchWorks. You must find the corresponding Answer list in order to add answers. Adding entries to this dictionary allows for answers to be added to a picklist, which can then be tied to an additional information question. These answers then appear in a dropdown in the front end in any order that specific picklist is associated with.



  • Adding Items - Items can be added to an answer set (as seen in the left pane) or a new answer set can be created.
  • Picklist - Used to create picklists, which can then be attached to questions, located in the Additional Information dictionary, when the "answer data type" for a given question is defined as "picklist".
