Create a people-picker field

To let users choose other users from a list, create a "people picker" field.

The Assigned to field is a people-picker field that is present in every tracker. An artifact can be assigned to only one user at a time. You can give yourself more flexibility by adding any number of custom people-picker fields.

For example, your QA team may want to assign a person to track progress on an artifact while it is assigned to a developer. You might create a people-picker field called "QA monitor" to specify who that person should be.

In people-picker fields you create, users can select multiple users.

Note: Creating a huge number of user fields can slow down the site's performance.
