Get the user name from a a column type "person or group"

Jump to solution

Hello to all,

I am working with nintex workflow 365.. I need your help with the following question, i am trying to print a user name in my nintex workflow notification, the user name is being filled in the main form in a column called "name" type "person or group" now when I put this column in my workflow notification what I get is the following string "i:0#.f|membership|fuentwa@xxxxx.com" is there a way to get the user name without getting i:0#.f|membership|? or just print the user name?

Thanks in advance

Sure thing! The "account" property of the user object is the default one. This is why you see user's login with a claim.

To choose, what property from the user object you would like to show, use the "Advanced lookup" and then pick the "Display name" property:

  1. Click the "Advanced lookup"
  2. Select your workflow variable (the user one)
  3. Click the "fx" icon on the right
  4. Select the "Display Name" property
  5. Then "OK" and "Insert"

And done!

Regards,

Tomasz
