Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
I am trying to connect a form question to a field I created and saved to the Field library. New saved field does not show in field library but when I try to recreate it, it says it has already been created.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to question on Creative Request form: Created By which is a single select dropdown.
  2. Click on Connect to Field
  3. Search the field library for previously saved fields so that the field auto-populates with the creator’s name.
  4. Saved field does not show so try to create again
  5. Asana says the field has already been created.

Browser version:
Chrome - latest version

What version of Asana are you using (Basic/Premium/Business/Enterprise)?
Business

Can you confirm that the field in the library is defined to be a single-select field also? “Connect to field” only shows fields of the same type as the question’s type.

Ahh, that is the issue. The field in the library is a “People” field. I’d prefer to be able to choose that instead of the single-select but it’s not an option to choose from when I edit the form.

How can I get that field to auto-populate the name of the person who is submitting the request so I don’t have to go into list view every time and add the name?
