I need to create a nintex workflow:
- I need to know who the workflow initiator is.
- Put this information in a column in the item.
- Use this information to send a message to the initiator.
How can I do this?

Nintex provides a method to see who started the workflow, it is defined as the Initiator in the Common workflow variables. So when your workflow is triggered, you'd update a list item and set the column to the Initiator. Then you'd send a notification and select the Initiator as the To person.
The workflow ‘Initiator’ value is automatically captured in the ‘Insert Reference’ Common metadata as shown below.
