I'm trying to create a List User field with formula to populate the list with all the users who have permissions to the app. I'm new to Quickbase, so still learning the ropes but any assistance you could provide would be appreciated.

Can you explain why?  The reason I'm asking is that thee really is not a way to do that, and also there is a limit to how many users can be in one user list.  I think that the limit is 20 but I would have to double check that in the documentation.

What are you trying to accomplish here, maybe there is a better way.

When a request is submitted, it does not always belong to the person submitting it. Sometimes, they are submitting it for a user. In these cases, I would like a drop-down that contains a list of all the users, so they can select who the request belongs to.

If you have a user field type, then it will automatically show a list of all users in the application as long as they are flagged on the User list (that first icon of a User on the Table bar) to appear on drop down lists.  The default is that users do appear on that drop down list.
