    Referring to "You can add users to a virtual marketplace by filtering them by the following CTM:People form fields"

    Filtering is not limited only to the mentioned CTM:People form fields. Custom DropDown fields of CTM:People form appear in the Other Fields tab too. Since filtering in DWP Catalog entitlements is still limited compared to the "Advanced Query Builder" in SRDs this possibility is very usefull as a workaround...

    Please update documentation accordingly.
