Retrieving the user who submitted a form

I am stuck with an issue that combines both Nintex Forms and Nintex Workflow.


I have a section of a form with a submit button.

I would like to save the user who clicked the submit button in a "People or Group" field called Approved By.


However, the button is already "Connected to" another field and sets a value there that the workflow uses to understand what state the form is in.


Once the workflow starts, I do not have access to the "CurrentUser" that was using the form.

The workflow should have been executed by that user though? Am I correct in thinking that?


Greg clicks the Submit button which fires off a workflow, that workflow was fired off by Greg?

Is this correct?


I can't seem to pull the value of that user who executed the action.


I thought maybe I could have a field on the form that always tracks the current user, however it only tracks the first user and even after I clear the value it doesn't repopulate correctly.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I can clarify anything further.
