Filtering a lookup list control using Display Name

Upon form approval, I add a value to a separate list of "approved items".  I use that list in a list lookup, however, I want to filter that based on the Title field which I'm currently passing "Initiator Display Name".  I can retrieve the values from the field, but it won't filter down based off the Title field when I use the Current User (Display Name) as a parameter.  Any help is appreciated.

Re: Filtering a lookup list control using Display Name

Hi David,

Have you tried setting a Form variable first (the formula would looks something like: userprofilelookup(current user,"displayName") and then using this in place of the "Current User" parameter in the list lookup?

Re: Filtering a lookup list control using Display Name

Alex,

I'm working in Office 365 and I don't see that option.  I'm new to Nintex Forms so maybe I'm missing something.  In fact, I find nothing around "userprofilelookup" in O365.  I simply want to filter the list lookup on the current user's display name, is it really this hard?
