Enumeration Values

Does anyone know if there’s a way to include an enumeration value that starts out as empty/can populate to a value? Essentially we have an app that takes in data and one of the our entity attributes is an Enumeration called “Status” with four pre-filled values. We’re finding that there’s an occasional left field status that we don’t have built in. They aren’t all the same/it’s not really feasible to go in and add new Enumeration values for each anomoly.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

you could have enumeration value Other and an additional attribute called StatusNotes.  Then when you encounter the outliers, you mark them as Other and put the ‘passed in value’ into the StatusNotes attribute.
