Directory Lookup Usage Example

When using the field, simply start typing the first few letters of the users first name or surname, and the field will display a drop-down list of 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 users will be shown either as names or as email addresses.
