I have a Document Library based on a custom content type and I cannot figure out how to grab information from the user profile. The built-in column called "Created By" knows my "full name" based on my identity as logged on to my intranet and hence Sharepoint. How can I leverage this to similarly grab my Manager's Name?
Currently, Manager's Name results in a [data entry] text box. I want to know how to have a column of the content type automatically set to the Manager's Name as determined by the values within the Active Directory (SP user profile).
In workflows, I have an approval workflow which finds the Manager for the WorkflowContext initiator (i.e. "me"). Is there a way to get this value set for a document library item?
In a similar way, I'd like to grab my E-Mail value from the User Profile (rather than the way the Site Column called E-mail just defines a type of "Single line of text" and requires data entry.
