Question: How to check if a person in a control field found on my Nintex form is equal to a specific user?

Overall Goal: Understand how to use userEquals(single login, single login) function in a form rule

 

Example:

- I have a SharePoint list that contains various columns including one called, "thisPerson" of type person or group. FYI our SharePoint is connected to the active directory.

- In my custom Nintex form, the user will enter in a name of person and select the appropriate person from the directory.

 

I want to check if this person is equal to a specific person "Joe Smith" who is also in the active directory. Joe Smith has a username (userjs) and a SharePoint profile.

 

I have tried:

 

userEquals(thisPerson, "Joe Smith")

userEquals(thisPerson, userjs)

userEquals(thisPerson, "userjs")

userEquals(thisPerson, userProfileLookup("domain\userjs", "UserName"))

 

Any suggestions would help! Thanks!
