Assigned Staff (Control Element)

The control element for Assigned staff allows you to view and assign project groups or project staff via an activity form.

This option is only available when you select Activity as the stereotype when creating the form. In the form, you can replace the Unspecified Staff entry with actual persons and groups.

On the left side of the toolbox, under All Controls or Context specific, click Assigned staff and drag the control element into the form. Once the control element has been placed, the properties open on the right.
