Check the project permission scheme - do you have the permission to *set* the assignee? The field will vanish if you don't.

The permission's name is "Assign Users". Please check your Project's permission scheme and make sure you have that permission.

Hi Parker,

You may refer to the document below for general troubleshooting on fields missing in screens:

The Admin Helper is particularly useful for such cases. Nevertheless, this most likely looks like a permission issue, as answered by Nic.

Cheers,

Danilo
