Allow precision values for Custom numeric dropdown

IBM Blueworks live allows users to define a custom numeric property . However there is no specification on the precision of the property . Currently the platform allows users to enter 9 digit long number. We have a business requirement that needs users to enter a number only upto 2 decimal places. ( we are presently managing this via a tool tip message that asks users to enter a value only upto 2 decimal places ) However , it would be useful if an Admin could control the precision value of a ‘number property’ ( eg . restricting it to custom number of decimal places ) This would prove to be advantageous for processes that involve mathematically important properties that need to have a define degree of numerical precision. Eg : time values , Quantitatively significant variables in finance etc.

    We accept the request, but don't have a target timeline at this time. We will update this Idea when that changes.

    Thanks again!
