My "Current User" value is displaying "i:0#.w|domain\username". How can I get this to display the users full name and not "i:0#.w|domain\username".
You can insert People picker control name into formula, e.g. person:
It shows me the manager.
to show the current users display name insert a people picker control:
In preview it looks like
Great. I now get the users name in that field but now my calculated value fields don't populate. An example userProfileLookup(Employee Name,"department").
To clarify the "employee name" is a people picker column that the manager selects the name and based on the name they select I am trying to auto populate the title and department fields. This is not based on the current user.
Works great. The mistake I was making is not selecting the control name.
Thank you for all the help.
I have tried to replicate this but having no luck. Can you please confirm:
What column type is the Department column?
I have tried making this a calculated column, but am unable to select my employee name column in the formula. Do you add this formula into the sharepoint column directly or in the nintex form control?
I added the formula to an Nintex Forms Calculated Value control. 'departement' or 'Manager' are user profile attributes.
I don't understand the answer. I want the user's name to be entered into the list that the form belongs to. I need it to have a Name and be Connected To the proper field in the list.
All I want is the user's name. I don't want the manager or the department.. I just want the user.
I have the field set exactly as you show, selecting Current User, and I am still getting "i:0#.w|domain\username".
Any other suggestions?
