Mapping Dependency Field in Zoho Desk

[Zoho Desk] Mapping Dependency Field

There are certain fields whose values depend on another field's value. This can be defined as a parent-child relationship. For example, let's say there are two fields - Country and State - in your Tickets module. The values in the State field will depend on the country that you select from the Country field. Similarly, the values for the Sub-Department field will depend on the Department field that you choose. Mapping dependency fields establish this kind of relationship. You can define which values will appear in the Child field when a particular value is chosen in the Parent field. Note that this is applicable only for picklist fields.
