    Good morning or evening (dependant on where you are from )

    I wonder whether anybody could share any information and guidance on showing a relative newbie how to create a new field in openit system 2.0.  All I want to do is create a department field in the support create form that users can select instead of me manually inputting a large list of users into the employees field?  I have managed to create a field in the Mysql database ok, but I need some script guidance on how to create the code to implement into the module php code.  If i can at least understand the important php code commands then I could probably do so much more in the future with this!!

    Thanks very much for taking the time to read this!

      phpmyAdmin?
      It has a great documentation (read: mySQL).

      Unfortunately, it is not a simple process.  There are some notes in the documentation, and I added a few more in the process of upgrading to 3.0.

      In addition to just creating the database field, there are a couple of arrays that need to be added to in order to get it to show up in the form.
