I am using SharePoint 2013 workflow, is there a way to concat two string variables? I don't see an activity for it!


SPD does not offer a concat function.

You can use SharePoint workflow variables and the String Builder dialog box in SharePoint Designer 2013 to be able to perform string concatenation.

This might help or check my steps below.

Step One: Create variables and put in a string.

Step Two: Run the Workflow. Here my Output (Only the four variables in the StringBuilder):

If you think my answer is good, please give it a "vote up" or mark it as the answer if it fits perfectly for you.

Also uploaded a blogpost just now with a Step-by-Step "Storybook" of your question ;)

  • thanks! Though instead of logging directly, you should set the final concat sting into a variable and then log. Anyways, it helped..:) – Taran Goel Sep 4 '15 at 6:17
