create email address from users first name and last name field

Hello,

 

I have a requirement where I have three fields:

1. First Name

2. Last Name

3. Email Address

 

What I need to do is create a workflow that will take the first and last names and create an email address in the following format:

 

first.last@company.com

 

Once the email address is created then it needs to display in the Email Address field.

 

Any assistance with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you

Trying using the Build String action.  You can use Insert Reference to put the first and last name in the action, then add the period between the names and the @company.com at the end.  Assign the result to a workflow variable, then use Update Item action to assign the result to the e-mail field.
