I had a request today from our sys admin related to a pick list. Basically our Invoice Contact pick applet opens and takes the user to the first contact in the list, even if a contact has already been selected. If a contact has already been selected then it seems that the user should see the selected contact highlighted when they open the pick applet. A reasonable request, right?
Turns out there is a property that will do just this. On the picklist, Long List, is defaulted to Y. I believe Siebel defaults this value to improve performance on long picklists. A contact pick list is potentially very long, so you'd have to evaluate setting this property carefully.
