Populating Person Fields from a Form

I have an issue in that I am trying to create a form where my form takes the submitters name that they entered and have it populate a field in my project. I can currently do this by creating a custom text field. However, I want to be able to use a Person field, which is currently not an option. When a person’s name comes into the project from the form, I want Asana to know its a person from my company, not just text that someone entered (which could be anything). Are there any plans to have this functionality in forms?

Hello @Kevin_Nelson,

I recommend monitoring updates in this thread because since the people field was launched it is now also available in rules already and portfolio too so I assume they will make it available for forms also in the future.
In the meantime one workaround to use could be this one for example.
