Hi @Nathan Holder 

Are you trying to mention in the description field?

If you ware trying to do it on a custom field then you may want to take a look at this page.

In general it could be due to lack of permission. Take a look at this page as well. Basically Ensure that the user has Browse User global permission.

I hope it helps.

The issue was the Browse User permission. Thanks!
