Custom Values in Components

You may see the option to enter a custom value when configuring Components. When you manually enter a custom value, it will be the same every time it appears and won't change when the data in your sheet or table changes.

Custom Values in Conditions

The value you test for in a condition defaults to an empty field where you can enter a custom value. Depending on the condition's context, you may see Column ValuesUser Profile Columns or Screen Values in this menu.

If you use a custom value in the filter condition, then it will only return items that contain the custom value you are filtering for.
