[img=left]images/uploaded/201106211309384e009812903aa.jpg[/img]You can have it automatically populated via an existing metadata tag (set via F9, tab Metadata). Metadata tags (embedded in the file) can be batch processed via the metadata editor. For this, the user field must have exactly the same name as the metadata tag.

In a future release of v8, the user fields displayed in the info panel may also allow multiselect edit (which means you select several thumbnails and then edit a user field for all files in a single operation). Not sure if this is in the plans at the moment.
