Preact’s Multi Select LookUp Add-on can be configured for any entity; in this scenario I've got it on the accounts entity.
You can see here [SEARCH FIELD] I've just enabled it, and I've called this field Account Managers. Predominantly, I've set this control to look at users.
It's quite common that Accounts might be owned by many Account managers or Area Managers. Over here [TOP RIGHT OF ACCOUNT RECORD] we have the default owner field and you can only have one owner of the record. But it's quite useful to be able to come in here [ACCOUNT MANAGERS FIELD] and put somebody in there; so if I type and add Chris who might be an account manager, we might also add Mark who's an account manager and lastly we might also have Fiona.
So this is just one way of using the Multi-Lookup Control. In this instance I've got this set to users but it can also look at Contacts or any other entity. The field can also sit on any form, on any other entity as well.
Thanks for listening.
