Aklapper added a subscriber: mmodell.

IIUC author affiliation might also be wanted. The Security team has form 75 which offers an Author Affiliation field.
I'm not sure how the same field could be introduced/"shown" on tasks which at some point (not necessarily at creation!) got tagged with DBA though.
@mmodell: Any thoughts (as my knowledge about Forms is rather limited)?

@mmodell: Any thoughts (as my knowledge about Forms is rather limited)?

The field will show on any task that has a value for the field. We'd have to use a task type or a herald rule to make that show up I think since it's normally hidden.

@mmodell : "The field will show on any task that has a value for the field." - so it only applies if the field value was set at creation time (presumably via a form)? As a side note, looking at the advanced filtering on the workboard I don't see that field as a choice, so it may not be applicable to our use case after all.

Correct

As a side note, looking at the advanced filtering on the workboard I don't see that field as a choice, so it may not be applicable to our use case after all.

I might be able to add a custom workboard filter if there is a compelling use-case.
