Nintex Forms 2013 Current User Display

Jump to solution

My "Current User" value is displaying "i:0#.w|domain\username". How can I get this to display the users full name and not "i:0#.w|domain\username".

 

Thanks

Great. I now get the users name in that field but now my calculated value fields don't populate. An example userProfileLookup(Employee Name,"department").

To clarify the "employee name" is a people picker column that the manager selects the name and based on the name they select I am trying to auto populate the title and department fields. This is not based on the current user.

You can insert People picker control name into formula, e.g. person:

 

userProfileLookup(person,"Manager")

 

It shows me the manager.

Works great. The mistake I was making is not selecting the control name.

Thank you for all the help.

Hi Manfred,

I have tried to replicate this but having no luck. Can you please confirm:

What column type is the Department column? 

I have tried making this a calculated column, but am unable to select my employee name column in the formula. Do you add this formula into the sharepoint column directly or in the nintex form control?

Thanks,

billie

I added the formula to an Nintex Forms Calculated Value control. 'departement' or 'Manager' are user profile attributes.

I don't understand the answer. I want the user's name to be entered into the list that the form belongs to. I need it to have a Name and be Connected To the proper field in the list. 

All I want is the user's name. I don't want the manager or the department.. I just want the user. 

I have the field set exactly as you show, selecting Current User, and I am still getting "i:0#.w|domain\username".

Any other suggestions? 

Control Settings for my Single Line Textbox, with Current User as default value

Results showing i:0#.w|domain\userID

Use the user profile attribute "PreferredName".
I.e. (Current User, "PreferredName")
