Cannot reference to other users


When I type @, I cannot reference to other users. The only user that is found is me.

Weird, because I do have tables with columns of the ‘People’ type where other users are referenced.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

I like to populate a Select control with some users, so that I can dynamically filter a view.

Thanks for your help.

Dear @Koen73,

Are you sure you shared the doc with the intended users?
Only then you will be able to reference them :slight_smile:

Hi @Jean_Pierre_Traets,

Yes, the document is shared with the others.
Yet I cannot reference them when I type @

Is there maybe any other way to populate a Select control with all users?

Best, Koen

Hi @Koen73,

I just created a small test doc, and it works fine.
Did you try it an another doc to see if it works, with at least 2 users?
Another option I would try is to make a copy of your current doc and to see if you will be lucky

Otherwise write to, I am sure they will be able to see the status of your file

Same behavior in a new doc… I’ll write to


FYI, this issue is resolved.

Although the document was shared with others on our Gsuite, referencing to other users was not possible until they had opened the document once.
