We're excited to announce another hot feature that you've been asking for! A new type of custom field populated with your Agile Central user list is now available.



This new field type will be available for work items, projects, workspaces and users, which will:

  • Allow better tracking of all contributors to work items, like testers, product owners/managers, etc.
  • Allow you to add other contributors to projects or workspaces
  • Allow associations between people by adding these fields to users, like manager or dev lead


To create these fields, administrators can select the Drop Down List (User) type in the field creation window:




Some things to note:

  • User-type custom fields will not be supported in timesheets
  • User-type custom fields will not be selectable in reports


Thanks to morky01 for another awesome hackathon project that provides great value to our customers!
