In this article I want to explain what is Users List filter type and how to use it.
Users List filter have several targets:
- Allows you assign users to item and filter items by user
- Configure users access to items
- Notify user when item is created
1. Assign users to item and filter items by users
If you have to assign users to items in your application you can do it by creating filter with type Users List. It means when you crate item you can select users from exist users list and assign them to item.
Users List filter type have several view options: Drop-down list, Checkboxes, Radio buttons. Use Checkboxes view type if you have to assign several users to item.
Note: users list in sub-materials depend with assigned users in parent material items.
Once you added Users filter to material you can filter items by users in items listing.
Also filter by users will be available in reports form.
2. Configure users access to items
As you know users in Bilt separated by user group and when you create User Group you can configure users access. There are two special access types: Manage Own Only and View Own Only. If you set access allows users view or manage own only items it means users will have access to items where they are assigned.
3. Notify user when item is created
By default email notification is active so it means if you create item and assign user to item user will get email notification. Also user will be notified if comment will be added to item.
Check Email Options in Configuration->General->Email Options
