I'm trying to use the following function for a calculated field on a form but no value is being returned:


     userProfileLookup(Current User,"displayName")


We're using Claims-based authentication for our SharePoint 2013 on-prem farm. So our user names are in the format of:




The userProfileLookup in-line function help text listed the syntax of the function as:


    userProfileLookup("domain\login", "InternalPropertyName")


So I tried substituting a manual value for the current user value to see if maybe it was because our usernames were in Claims format:




Still no dice.


What I'm attempting to do is use the display name of the current user in a form rules formula to hide a field on a form unless the current user is listed in at least one of several people picker fields on the form. But I'm struggling to get the Current User value into a format that will match the values in the people picker fields.
