Run workflow based on User

No you will not be able to filter run if action based on a people picker field. Use condition action.

Re: Run workflow based on User

If I use the Condition Action, how am I typing the user in? I've tried their email and that didn't seem to work.

Re: Run workflow based on User

Run if initiator is not equal to user/group to start an approval process.

or in the conditional branch:
If Initiator is equal to user -- run an approval process under the "no" branch.

Re: Run workflow based on User

@mcamarco .....Is there a reason for using email id instead of username or display name? If you want to compare the email  then you can get the email of the initiator and then compare it with your variable. If equal operator doesn't work then try using contain operator.
