Form Fields & Components: User

A User field allows you to select a name or email address from your organization’s user directory. It is very similar to the Multiple Users field type, except that it will allow only a single name to be selected.

Directory Lookup Usage Example

When you click into the field, a drop-down list will display available user names. If you can see the name you need or quickly scroll to it, then select it that way . If the list is long, simply start typing the first few letters of the users first name, surname or email address, and the field will display only the names that match what has been typed. Then either select the desired name, or type a few more characters so the desired name can be seen, and then select the name. Depending on the Display Format setting, the user(s) will be shown either as names or as email addresses.
