SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to set a Person column in a list item inside of a SharePoint Designer workflow. No matter how I try to set the column, I get the same result: the column is set using the user's claims ID.

If I pause the WF for a minute, I can use that field & assign tasks to the user within it. If I view that field in Edit mode in the web UI, it looks fine; it shows the proper user's full name. If I open the list item in view mode, I get the claims ID.

Any pointers/ideas are appreciated.
