So I created a workflow which sends an alert email to specific user. The content of email is to say which user created a task. In string builder of email content I use [%Current Item:Created By%] but in email this is showed like i:0#.w|sprax\ itsollutions.user2.

How do i remove the bolded part?

  • Are you using designer workflow?Do you want to show display name or login name of the user in email? – Unnie Aug 3 '14 at 19:09
  • Yes, I'm using Sharepoint Designer Workflow on 2010 platform. I want to show display name, currently it shows login's name with bolded part. Display name would be best, but solution of login name without bolded part would be great too. – user3529236 Aug 3 '14 at 19:32
