List User Field - challenge to bump it up a notch...


We do like the capability of the List User field where we can use only one field to select multiple users, up to ten. I have a challenge for you to make that even more flexible.

I am currently developing an app where when a certain 'group' (not QB Group - a company Group) is selected from a drop-down list, a section opens on the form displaying anywhere from three to, unfortunately, more than ten users in separate user fields with their own checkboxes residing next to each user field. Checking the checkbox determines whether that user receives an email notification when the record is created.

With the new List User field enhancement, it would be 'cool' to be able to use such a field to define certain chosen groups of users. Then, when I select a group from a drop down box, the correct list user field would display already populated with the users required for the group selected from the drop down box. 

Form rules could be like:
if ( [drop-down] = "Web Group" display [web group user field list])
if ( [drop-down] = "Finance" display [finance user field list])
... etc

Then I could check off whom ever I'd want to receive a notification when that record is created.

The benefit is of course, less user fields defined, and, even better, no checkboxes to select users need be created. Less maintenance and fuss when ever new users need to be added also.

So, in other words, allow that List User Field or any number of List User Fields to be 'pre-loaded' with 'specific' registered users rather than all users in my realm.

I hope that made sense.
