Where is the equivalent to GetUserProfileByName? Do I need to use Java?
Just went through the form again while doing something else and found something in the runtime functions that can be useful. Actually don't remember seeing it before.
In the calculation value column, you can access the userProfileLookup function that is part of the runtime functions. That may be a great place to start.
Are you trying to do that in Forms or Workflow?
If you want to list a persons manager into a list item, you can use the query user profile and in the common fields, pull back the manager field for the person who initiated the workflow or you can set that to a variable, have the user enter the person they want to find the manager for and go from there.
It really depends on what you are trying to do, but this can be done within Nintex workflows easily.
We're trying to evaluate the tool so we're novices. I'm trying to develop a relatively simple form for requests and approvals. With InfoPath, we didn't have to go through workflows. Where can I find tutorials or do they now exist?

So, I have can't find the query user profile. Is that a workflow command?
Understood and thanks for the preface.
You can do some of the same features with Nintex Forms as InfoPath, but not everything. You don't need a workflow to query the user profile, its just easy to do it that way.
Here is the code you can use in the Form to retrieve the manager:
NWF$('#' + varManager).val(GetUserProperty(data,"Manager"))
this will get Manager value

I was hoping I wouldn't have to use Java either. I guess I'll have to learn it.
You may be hearing from me a lot while we evaluate the software.
Here is what I found..
