For "restrict", you can also use variables

  • {!resourceId} = the user's recorce id
  • {!contactId} = the user's resource contact or user contact id (e.g. community users)
  • {!userId} = the user's resource user id

SQL Where restriction examples

  • MyContactId__c={!contactId}
    • select options restrictcted where the custom object field MyContact__c matches the users's resource contact
    • key: ALookup:MyCustomObject__c:restrict
    • value: MyContactId__c={!contactId}
  • OwnerId={!userId}
    • show only records owned by the user - example: only own cases
    • key: ALookup:Case:restrict
    • value: OwnerId={!userId}



Here is an example, to show a custom field in the Case lookup


Here an example, where the lookup values of the custom object Applicants__c is restricted by the selected project:


Project Status info

You can show additional project information in the Project Status popup in the Timesheet, Timer, etc.


The Key has the format

  • PjStatus:x:Project
  • PjStatus:x:Line

depending from where to get the information from. If the information is not directly on the Project or Project Line, you could create a formula field.


The Value String contains the name of the field in either Project or Project Line, e.g. MyCustomField__c
