Here is an awkward scenario.
Imagine a form field for setting who can receive an email.
The primary need is that anyone in particular job type groups can receive (Job 1, Job 2, Job 3).
However, there must be an option to select "Anyone" also. This means people NOT in groups could receive email.
The main challenge here is that we need to be able to select multiple groups, such as Job 2 & Job 3. But ALSO to allow for anyone else that is not in a group. (so excluding Job 1)
How could we possibly do this in a menu?
We tried adding an option for "unassigned" and we think this is really our only solution.
Attached are two images of the menu that we created. In the first image, we would show tags as selected...but we cannot logically allow for "anyone" AND "Job 3." This would require crazy logic to show/hide tags and would confuse the user.
So is there any other way?
