I have a calendar where people are assigned to tasks. I am using a Person or Group datatype for the Assigned To field.
where you have to enter the name then check it to make sure it has identified the user. Using the directory is frustrating and slow.
The settings for both examples are exactly the same:
- Enforce unique values: No
- Allow multiple selections: No
- Allow selection of: People Only
- Choose from: All Users
- Show field: Name (with presence)
The drop down is faster, easier, cleaner, and just overall better in my opinion so I'd really like to use it on all my forms.
1. Is the Person or Group field different because one is a task list and the other is a calendar?
2. How can I change the field from having a button to using the drop down?
