I have Column in list of type Group/Users

 

I want to restrict users to select only 4 sharepoint group out of number of groups.

 

when user type group name -its get autopopulated but user can select any group.i want to have restriction so user can select only 1 group from 4 group.

Solution

@rautchetan27One option you can use is AD/Domain groups.

 

Step 1: Create 4 AD/Domain groups and add the users in it.

Step 2: Make sure those groups are synced to your SharePoint.

Step 3: Create SharePoint Group which and add the 4 AD Groups in to it. Because for SharePoint, AD/Domain groups are like users.

Step 4: Specify the SharePoint group so that user can only select the AD/Domain group members.

 

Thanks,
