Is there a way to show "All Users/Groups" in the Select People and Groups dialog?

Select People and Groups

I have tried "*" and "%" but they come back with nothing.

No there isn't any OOB method to show ALL USERS, however if you bind it to a SharePoint Group... then all users in the group will be displayed by default...

But limiting it to a group will allow to select people from the Group only!

I hope this helps...

Thanks - helps in that I know what it can't do! It's actually on the Admin side, rather than user side I was thinking. I work in the Middle East, and spellings and pronunciations and ways names are written often don't being able to scroll through all users would have been very useful! – BlueChippy Dec 9 '12 at 6:47
