Migrate Select Fields to New Data File Sections

If you’re using Data Files as a source for your Select Fields there is an additional step to migrate successfully to the new handling of Data Files.

To update your data source with Forestry you can navigate to a relevant Front Matter Template in your Front Matter Settings and click on the next to the Select Field.

At the bottom of the Field Editor you now have to set your Source Type to Document Fields.

In the following field you set the Section to the section label that holds your data files.

The remaining Fields should be familiar and might not need any updating.
