    Description

      Some search areas set the author of the content in userid field, some of them, there the author is not important (an activity) not, but would be nice to have a filter by author for the documents that have one.

      There are two options:

      • The simple one would be just an input text with a backend function to parse the input and "convert it" to a userid to apply the filter
      • Use autocomplete form field type (ajax) with a complex algorithm to check permissions and retrieve only names of users you can see (you can see them all in messaging system anyway, but for what I remember that is a bug to fix, same function could be used for messaging too)
