Nintex notification emails - when I insert a user, it shows as "i:0#.w|domain\smithm1" instead of their name

Jump to solution

When crafting a notification email, one of the fields I'm using is the "Created By" field, and in the actual email it doesn't show as the person's name, it shows as i:0#.w|domain\smithm1  instead of "Mark Smith".

Hopefully this is an easy fix?

Change created by to initiator's display name.

Hi,

You can use Initiator Display Name as @Andrew Wilkie suggested.

If you want to get some additional properties of User, 'Query User Profile' is an alternative, you can retrieve a lot of properties.

Query user profile :

Send Notification :

Output :

Hope this helps.

Or you can use the return type when setting a variable to get the display name:

From what I'm reading, "Initiator Display Name" displays "The display name of the user who started the workflow, or caused the event which triggered the workflow."

Not the name of the user who created the list item (Created By).  Not sure this will work for this purpose.
