Hello Everyone,

There is a column which is single line of text that contains Email IDs which has to be converted to people picker.

I have a created a WF for this with the below steps.

  • Created a variable X (People picker). Using Set a variable action, stored the single line of text that contains Email ID.
  • Later using "Set a field value" stored the variable to a people picker field.

Workflow is throwing "The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information." error.


Please let know where I am going wrong.
