I have a responsive form that the user wants to show the User's manager and the Branch Manager, Asst Director and Director. In am able to add a calculated value for the current user to get the supervisor to populate, but I need the Supervisor's Manager to populate and then that Manager's manager to populate if possible. Is that a possibility?
Solved! Go to Solution.
can´t double check this on my end since the manager field is (unfortunately!) not populated in our environment, but I always imagined it to look something like this:
Afterwards the "all managers" variable should contain the base-user (p) + all managers.
1) Set variable
3) Collection operation
4) Set variable
You need a variable of type "collection" for the collection operation. It is set to add the variable "p" (which is of type person)
Let me know if this works
I am new to Nintex and still confused on exactly what to put inside each step to get the cascading managers from AD. Can you send me a snipit of each step filled out?
@Michelle_MOE if you need only 3 levels of manager then try the below steps:
Make sure all these calculated controls calculate formula ONLY in the new mode, otherwise if someone else edits or views the form, it will show wrong information.
@Michelle_MOE you can use same formula to get the first and last name instead of preferred name.
e.g. Doe, John is the user's manager, then use below in calculated control:
userProfileLookup(ctrl_calc_UserManager,"FirstName")+" "+userProfileLookup(ctrl_calc_UserManager,"LastName") ---> John Doe
Also, could you please mark my reply as accepted solution?
