The “industry” field drop down list is not editable and does not include Healthcare.

Hi Niki, thanks for posting to PX Community!


Screenshots are always helpful so we can better understand the request, so please consider adding these in the future as appropriate. 


Are you referring to Account Attribute filters available in PX reports such as the following?



If so, this is not a user (or admin) editable field in PX and the available selections come directly from the Account data that your team is passing into PX.  Therefore, if any of your PX Accounts that are tracked by PX have “Healthcare” in their “Industry” field it will be available to choose.


I hope this helps!

Hi @Niki McKee ,


Based on your question on the community, I assume that you are looking to add the “Healthcare” value in the field called Industry from UI.

If my assumptions are correct, there is no way that you can edit values from UI.

The “industry” is the account level string field, which will be storing the data against each account, the way you need to ingest the data into that depends on the configuration


  1. You can send the data via SDK in the JSON format
  2. You can update the value Via Rest API

If you are sending the data via SDK, it will be loaded at the time of user’s identify call

Refer the below screenshot


once you have the data inside the field you can see the option in the dropdown while you are applying the filters.



Let us know if you have any other questions.

When utilizing an App, with PowerApps, you often will run into scenarios where you want to give the user multiple options in a single field. Allthough Power Apps does have a "drop down" control, after you add this specific control, you will quickly notice that there are more steps involved in creating this field. Today, we will show you how to do this by creating a custom function. Let's jump right in!

Step 1:

Step 3:

After the field is created, click on the new field. You will want to make sure the "Property" area is set to "Items"

The function needed to create a dropdown field is as follows: ["Option1","Option2","Option3"]
