I am a novice with Nintex and SharePoint. I have a simple notification work flow that runs anytime a request is updated. The notification shows the user that submitted the request along with who the request is for. I have these in a table along with information from the request. The columns these user fields are tied are in a list and are lookups on our company directory. When the fields are populated into email "I:0#.w|corp\" precedes the user id. How can I remove this so that it does not appear in the email?
Thanks for any help!
Solved! Go to Solution.
can you utilise initiator display name as is given in Common tab on workflow insert reference dialogue?
I normally use query user profile to get first and last name of users to display nicely in emails
Try using the formula below in a Regular Expression action to return everything after the "\". You can store the result in a workflow variable and use that variable in the notification.
I would usually just use a "Set Variable" action, create a variable called something like "txtApproverName", point it at the field that has your user, then you'll notice either an fx or a "..." to the right of the field in your action; click this, you can select Display Name or User Name or Email or whatever.
