Product Update: New custom field type: user

Discussion created by Yuval Pecht Employee on May 29, 2014

We have just release a new capability in custom fields. You are now able to define a custom field of the type ?user? which is populated by the users in your account as well as groups you have created.

Go to setup -> custom fields to define such new fields - see screenshot below:



Once the custom field is created, you can add it to the objects you defined, see for example below the new custom field of type user, called ?On loan to? which was added to computers:



A second example could be to create a custom field of type user, called "second level approver" which would then be added to changes.

A third use case could be to define a custom field of type user, called "solution owner" which would be added to solutions - this would be different than "creator" since in the long term it could be separate person.

At your service,
