userProfileLookup

Jump to solution

Hi,

I want to show the department of the signed in user  and I am using  the below run time function and applying it as a formula on a calculated control.

userProfileLookup(Current User,"Department")

but it always returns -

Under SharePoint people and Group, I see that the department is listed.

Not just "Department", it does not show any property.

I am using SharePoint foundation 2010 with Nintex 2010.

Can you tell me what has gone wrong here?

In that case you could use the "Query LDAP" action.

Take a look at this >>> Retrieve a user's Display name from their login

Hi,

I would want to retrieve the value at form level and make it visible to the users instead of having it in workflow.

Is there any alternative?

Thanks,

Ankita

I think the alternative is to get that information by JavaScript/jquery code.

You should find a way to query LDAP from client script.
