Pulling Job role in a report


Level 3

Hi Gurus!!

I am working on a report/calculate field that I need created. So here is the problem statement:

One of the clients want to track the name and job role of a resource on a project. As you all know that a particular project may have many stakeholders, so to keep one person responsible (apart from the Project Owner), I have created a typeahead custom field for the user (lets call it "Responsible Person". On a report I need to figure out what is the Job Role for this "Responsible Person". Dont really mind if its a calculated column or a calculated field I'll need to create to get this information.

Please help!!

Sadly, at the moment, typeahead fields only have name and ID associated with them. However, Product has told me they have on the roadmap the ability where you can get all information (including references and collections) for typeahead fields.

Not sure on timing, but hopefully soon you will be able to pull Responsible Person:role:name :)
