Using UserMulti field in the CAML schema

This was unexpected, and not documented at all in the SharePoint SDK.

When you create a UserMulti column, you must also specify Mult=”TRUE”, otherwise it will fall back to a standard (single select) User column type.

<Field ID=”{12312312-1234-1234-1234-123412341234}”


Group=”My Group”
Type=”UserMulti”
Mult=”TRUE”
