WooCommerce has a nice selector to choose an user for an order. It would be nice to add this instead of requiring a site item to know the user ID of the intended author.

This was removed quite a while ago and would need to be replaced with an AJAX powered search.

@spencerfinnell Yup, IIRC, WC uses select2 and hits an admin-ajax endpoint. I meant dropdown more as a GUI to select an user vs numeric ID input.

Yeah I agree, this is something that should be added back (but with AJAX feature), as it was originally removed to prevent memory or issues due to large user base, but having to locate the user ID is a hassle sometimes.
