I am needing to create a people field on a form that we are currently developing, but we require filtering to be applied to this field.
We need the field to only display users with a department assigned, this is due to our company having many service accounts that we do not want shown.
Appreciate any help that can be provided.
Welcome to Plumsail Community!
How do you determine whether a user belongs to a department? Do you use separate SharePoint groups for departments?

Thanks for your reply
Currently, the only option to filter the Person or Group field is to define a SharePoint group in the column settings. Thus, you can select only users from a specific group.
We can offer paid support for adding an ability to filter Person or Group field by account properties. If you are interested, email us at
for more information. [email protected]

Thanks for your help,
We will look into using SharePoint groups, and will look at contacting support if we need more functionality.
