#285 closed improvement (wontfix)

Show dropdownlist of users in search-tab

Custom meta-data templates can contain attributes that are of the type 'user'. When entering this meta-data for a file the UI shows a drop-down list that shows all the users in the system. This allows for easy data-entry.

When searching using this meta-data attribute in the parametric-search-tab, no dropdownbox is shown. You have to type in (part of) the username manually to get the desired results.

I think it would be easier for the end-user to show a drop-down list allowing the user to select rather than guess. Similar to the date-type-attribute that shows a calender selection tool in the parametric-search-tab.
