Hi,

 

I have a TEXT field called "SomeUser" in list which contain full name of user for e.g. Frank Martin.

 

I am trying to assign task to this user but getting error in Nintex Workflow:

Error in request data action. Cannot get the full name or e-mail address of user Frank Martin

 

Here's how I am trying to get this name in workflow:

  1. Created a new variable "UserName" of type "person or group"
  2. Added a new "Set Variable" action in workflow
  3. I am setting "UserName" value as "SomeUser"
  4. This step works fine and I am able to set it and also print "UserName" in history log
  5. But when I try to use same variable "UserName" in task form assignment, the workflow throws error.

 

How to fix this issue?

 

I want to read value of "SomeUser" which is of type text and assign task to that user.
