Allow multiple values in User Typeahead

Currently, only a single user can be selected in the User Typeahead. We would like to have a toggle on the field to allow multiple user selection, or enforce single value only.

We would like to have this feature as well. With the new enhancement from 19.4 release, we'd be able to also select multiple other object types (such as Company, Group, Job Role, Portfolio, Program, Project, and Template).

Yes, please! This would allow us to solve multiple problems, and especially enable us to create more valuable reports. As it stands, we've got manually-maintained lists of users that aren't recognized by the system as user objects (and thus can't be related to their teams, groups etc.) to try to work around this. Hope this gets into the queue to be worked on soon!

Hi Carolyn Glendening,


I just saw your comment and recognized we are facing similar issues here. I created a workaround for this problem and thought you might be interested until there is an integrated solution.


I created a custom field (drop-down,/check-boxes) and changed the values of the choices to reflect the UserIDs, whilst the label of each choice shows the User Name. This way you will able to select a user/multiple users from a list by name, but the IDs will be available as well.


Each time a user is created the field also needs to be updated, thus this option unfortunately needs a little more maintenance work. On the bright side though, you will be able to use things like wildcards ($$USER.ID) in reports.


It would be very interesting to hear about you specific use case!


Best regards,

Marvin

This is also a huge gap for us as we need to use custom fields to define project stakeholders (because there isn't a really good way to display people on a project and their explicit role on the project, even if you've used Scheduling to assign tasks to a specific role). So often times we'll have two Design Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers....but there isn't a good way to show this, and it's even more messy when trying to report it.

Hey everyone,


I wanted to share with you that we are conducting discovery research around Custom Forms Builder and would love to learn more about your use cases and your current experience.


We really appreciate your participation, and that will be a great help for us.


Those are 45 minutes long conversations, where we want to learn how you use Custom Forms Builder, what are the main challenges and how can we make it better.


If you're interested to participate, please feel free to book any convenient time slot via this link.


Thank you,

Gevorg

@Gevorg Kazaryan Our use case is similar to @Jeff Wunderler - We need to be able to assign a stakeholder role to users. A user's role may vary from project to project. The out-of-the-box Job Role field and custom fields associated with the User object don't work, since whatever option is selected will persist across all projects the user is on. For example, if I select "project sponsor" as the option at the User level on Job Role or on a custom field called "Stakeholder Role," then the user will show as project sponsor on all projects they're on. In reality, the same person can fill multiple different roles, depending on the project. They may be a technical subject matter expert on one project and the sponsor on another.

Hi there,


Has there been any meaningful movement on delivering this specific functionality? I can think of so many use cases for this that would save administrators piles of time as well as make things simpler for end users.
