Getting a user's Line Manager and assigning a Task

I tried using InfoPath to get a users Line Manager's name so that I could I automatically assign them a Worflow task, but I can't get it to work, so is they I can retrieve the Line Manager's name using Ninetex?

Hi Marian

I don't think I have access to the Query User Profile action as I'm on Nintex Cloud and using InfoPath forms.

Re: Getting a user's Line Manager and assigning a Task

I managed to get this help with a little help from a colleague. For anyone else facing the same issue I used a Build String action and added {Common:ManagerDisplayName} and assigned it to a text variable. I then used that text variable one the assignee, bingo! It worked!
