Expanding groups into names

Expanding groups into names

Expanding groups into names

Hello again... I'm starting to hate this project with a passion now, I'm on here every day!

I have a Names field in my profile document, which stores groups. I want users to be able to access a list of individuals, from a Dialog List field in another form, but using the standard formulas just brings up the group name.

RE: Expanding groups into names

I fear you'll have to use the group name to do a lookup in the server NAB.


RE: Expanding groups into names

Actually, I sorted it!

I have a visible editable field on my profile where the user can put different group names, and then a HIDDEN editable field which updates (through "Exiting") to contain exactly the same, but in the hiddent one, I have enabled "Look up addresses on document refresh" which is what I need. Now the visible field looks nicer, with just grou names, but the hiddent field creates a list.

RE: Expanding groups into names

Don't be so surprised at yourself ! You've put a lot of effort into understanding Notes, and now it's starting to pay off.
I say that's worth a good, cold beer.
I'll have one for you tonight .
