I am using an InfoPath form for my document library. Because of issues with InfoPath Person/Group fields mapping to SharePoint person/group fields correctly, I have a workflow that runs on form creation which sets the AccountId from the InfoPath person/group field to a SharePoint person/group field, forcing SharePoint to look up that Account and display the name.
This workflow is very simple. Only one step: "
Set Requester to Current Item:RequesterIdHidden" where
Requester is the SharePoint person/group field and
Current Item is the InfoPath form.
However, if the user selects a group on the InfoPath form, the workflow doesn't work correctly and the Requester field ends up blank (yes, the Requester field is set to allow Groups).
Is there an easy way to fix this issue?
