List of all Users

I am trying to make a dropdown list of all users, from an admin perspective. I don’t know if I need to add a list of users in the user database or have a separate database with just a list of users. I have hunted through all of the videos, articles and forums and think I am asking too specific of a question to get the best answer.

Here is my user database and what I am trying to do. (It’s only populating the current user not all users like I would like it to)


Any help will be greatly appreciated!

In your dropdown “choices” field,

Do a search for: Users

And then display each User’s first name, or whatever you want to display :slight_smile:

Hi there, @kendahl7… the fact that you are only seeing the current user is consistent with something that comes up quite often these days. The behavior you described is likely related to the default privacy rule of This User is Current User on the User data type. With that rule in place, users can only see their own data. So, check your privacy rules and see if that rule exists. If it does, you can remove it or modify it to meet the needs of your app, and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps.

This is what I get every time I do that. And when I switch it to “text” it still only shows the one user.

That was it! Thank you so much!
