Set field in SharePoint to "Created By" with Nintex Forms (no workflow)

So I would like to set the "Contact Person" column in my SharePoint list to the "Created By" value.

 

I have been able to get a "calculated field" to work (for the most part).  When the form is first created, the "Created By" field is not filled in until the form is Saved (which makes sense).  Then when the user looks at the form for the first time after the save, the "Contact Person" field is not set (because when the form was first saved, the created by field is not filled in until the form is saved.  But if the user then edits the form, the field is then set.

 

Any suggestions on how to do this?
