What I want to achieve: Automatic filling of some personal specific fields in a SharePoint List based on a person field like mail address and/or the phone number.

What I have tried so far:

  • A List workflow to enter the desired data as soon as the item has been created or changed
  • Some experiments with calculated fields (Then I realized that a Person field cannot be used in calculated fields and lookup fields)

Is there anything left to try expect Event Receiver and a JS-Script?

  • Which personal details you'd want to populate exactly?

  • The Mail address and the phone number.

  • It's a lengthy detailing, so I'll just suggest having a look at this article which does the same but with different personal details. You can adjust the implementation for your needs by using the other available details, namely Email address & Phone number. The link: blogs.technet.microsoft.com/anneste/2011/11/02/…
