I'm extremely new to Nintex but in the process of building a form (classic form on-prem). I've applied a people picker field to the beginning of the form but will need to have the name entered in the people picker field, replicate to a text field at the end of the form.


Is this possible? If so, could someone guide or help as I've been in search of this for weeks.

Add a Calculated Value control to the form and use the userProfileLookup runtime function to get the user's display name. Configure it with these settings:


  1. Name = Whatever you choose.

  2. Formula = userProfileLookup(Employee,"PreferredName")

  3. Connected To = Can be connected to and saved to a list column.
