This is a helper field & widget that lets you ask for a 'user or group'. It presents a select box for whether you wish to enter a user or a group, and then a text field for the name of the user or group you wish to have.

It will validate that the username or group name selected exists.

You would use this like any other field: class AddForumCollectionCreatePermForm(forms.Form): user_or_group = UserOrGroupField(label = "User or Group", help_text = "The user or group to grant " "forum collection create priveleges to.")
