Cascading Dropdowns: Using Person or Group field

Feb 13, 2010 at 1:33 PM

First of all thank you for the SpServices API, been using the cascading dropdown functionality and love it.

Easy to use even for a beginner like myself.

I wanted to ask if it was possible to use a "Person or Group" field as a parent column to filter.

My parentlist has two fields one of which is also a "Person or Group" column which I want to use as the relationship to filter the values in the dropdown.

In short, the user fills the "Person or Group" field, which allows me to tap into the assigned to alert type functionality, and based on their selection it will filter the dropdown below to only the relevant person specific options.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

thank you in advance,

Unless I'm mistaken, you can't use Person or Group values for a Lookup column.  You could limit the available users in the column to a specific group, however.
