Expand "Calculate" option for fields to Multi-User Hot

by Jeff Malin on May 20, 2015

We have a number of process areas in which we need to use "Composite" user fields in order to enforce ownership/responsibility or control permissions for items in a certain state. For example, a "Required Approvers" field may be built with a combination of users in the "Product Owner", "Platform Manager", "Project Manager", "Executive Sponsor" fields for a Feature Request workflow item. Today, building this multi-user field requires the use of custom App Script. It would be a nice enhancement to be able to use the "Calculate" option on a certain transition to set the multi-user field to an aggregation of the values (if present) of a specified list of other single- and multi- user fields. A similar use case is adding users to a "Watchers" field - currently, we have a transition where any user can press "Add Me" to be added to this multi-user field... but as before, this requires an App Script. If the "Watchers" field could be set to a "Calculation" of "Current Value + (Current User)", that would allow this to be done entirely through the GUI. Similarly, a "Remove" button could use a calculation of "Current Value - (Current User)" to remove the user pressing the button from a specified field. I'm sure that other users could present additional use cases for this functionality.
