I have in object two field Type__c and Phase__c, both are picklists, there is a field dependency in these fields. Type__c is the controlling one and Phase__c is the dependent. I want the same exact field dependency in another object.

Is there any way I can create a global field dependency so that I can attach it to two different objects.

The reason why I want the same dependency is because the dependent fields have different options given a particular Type__c, for example:

Type__c {1,2,3}


if Type__c = 1, then Phase__c{A,B}
if Type__c = 2, then Phase__c{B,C,E}
if Type__c = 3, then Phase__c{A,B,C,D,E,F}

Unfortunately as of now Salesforce doesn't support this functionality. So you need to create two separate fields on another object and then manually make them dependent.
