Append user to People&Group Field

Jul 25, 2013 at 6:50 AM
Hi,

We have an event tracking functionality. I would need to capture the attendees of the event on click of a button. On button click, the current logged in user should be added to the attendees field in the events list.

I am able to update the value, but on every update it overrides the existing user. I would insted want it to append the current user to the existing users in the Attendees column. Please find my code below,
$().SPServices({
        operation: "UpdateListItems",
        async: false,
        listName: "Upcoming Events",
        batchCmd: "Update",
        ID: 1,
        valuepairs: [["ParticipantsPicker", FullUser]],
        completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
               }
    });
Could anyone suggest me an approach to append the value, instead of overwriting.

There is not Append option to UpdateListItems so your update (valuepairs) needs to be all inclusive. Meaning include existing and new values.
