Display names in Notification messages

Jump to solution

Hi,

When I set up the the SharePoint list I have fields were people select who is the people at their plant who authorise at different stages.  I used a Person and Group field for this.

In the Nintex workflow Notification messages these names are mentioned in the message body.

When the people receive the message it displays the person log on User name and not their actual name.

How do I dispaly their actual name?

eg  \unicorn\cl0004

I want it to display Carole Lomax

 

Look forward to hearing from you.

Let us know if this helps.  For those watching, I demonstrated how to find the display name option in the configuration panel.
