After the installation of the Solutions2Share SuggestionField the autocomplete textbox is availible in the farm as custom field type with the name „SuggestionField”.

The autocomplete textbox can now be used.
If you have added the new field, it behaves like any other field, because no entries exist in the column.
Any additional entries will then expand the SuggestionField to the corresponding entry.
These Column (in this column "Branch") remembers the existing entries and gives you an autocomplete suggestion.
