Configuring Fields → Field Types and Settings → Multi-Group Fields
Multi-Group fields allow you to define one or more groups for users to choose from.
Multi-Group fields are useful for assigning multiple groups of people to be secondarily responsible for items while they reside in a particular state. For example, you may want customer requests to be owned by a product management group and a marketing group when they are first added to the system. You can specify these groups as secondary owners in the "New" state. This configuration is made in SBM Composer. For details, refer to the SBM Composer Guide.
The Allow Override check box is automatically selected when you modify attributes and value and display options when you are adding or editing a project.
You can override the following Multi-Group field attributes for default fields in projects and transition fields. Attributes set for fields in the Default Fields list apply to all transitions; attributes set for fields for a transition apply only to that transition.
For projects, select this check box to override field properties inherited from the parent project or workflow.
