I am looking to try and create a dependant picklist management tool, but I have read several times that older versions of the API do not support the ability to manage fields. Is this still the case? Is there no way to:
1) Get the list of all the picklist fields (done)
2) Print out the values of the controlling field and the child field based on parent field values (done)
3) Generate a list of values to be updated in the parent and/or child controls (done)
*4) Update SF custom field with the values from my app
I am not finding any information that is helpful for #4. Is it impossible to manage fields through code or is it just not exposed to developers yet? Maybe I am missing where it explains this functionality, but if someone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
We have a lot of dependant picklists to set up and while we love that the feature actually exists, the users are overwhelmed with how long it takes to manage the fields.
