The Link to User Field can be used to assign Fusioo Users to specific App records. The Link to User Field is most commonly used for the following scenarios:

  • Responsible (e.g: the Project’s Responsible User)

Adding a Link to User Field

Learn how you can add a new Field in Fusioo. Here are some of the Link to User Field’s additional options:

Default Value The User Selected is added automatically when creating a new record.
Users Type

The Users Type will determine which type of Users will be available in the list.

Regular Users - Only Regular Users will be available in the list.

Lite Users - Only Lite Users will be available in the list.

All Users - All Users will be available in the list.

Auto-follow record?

When ticked, all selected Users will follow the record in context.

For example, if you create a new task and set John Doe as Responsible, whenever that task is updated John Doe will automatically be notified.

When unticked, Users will need to manually follow a particular record if they want to be notified when it's updated.

Allow multiple choice? When ticked, the user can select multiple values (Users). When unticked, the user can only select a single value from the Users list.
