calculated col not displaying information

Jump to solution

Good day,

 

I thought this would be pretty simple, but evidently not.  I want to display the current user on a form. I used a calculated column to get the current user and connected it to the SharePoint column and it doesn't display.

 

Configuration:

 

Form display:

 

Does anyone see anything wrong?

 

Thanks,

Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

If you would like to display the current user then use Current User from Common tab.

Created By field will not show up untill the item has been created.

It didn't appear after I submitted the form either, which would be after it was created.  Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Jennifer

Instead of Calculated Value, use Label. You just want to show it, there is no calculation as such.

That'll work, thanks.  Hey, do you know if there is a Nintex guide somewhere where I can find out how to use the different workflow actions?

Thanks!

you can just search for "Guide" on the community.

Here is one: Nintex Workflow Help File Excerpts (look here for user guide content)

Also, for each action, there is help available on the action itself. It is the last icon on the toolbar of that action.
