I have a contacts list workflow which populates an employee's job title and email address when their full name is entered. If i display 'Job Title' (person or group column type) it will show the employee's correct job title.
However, i have excluded this and created a separate column 'Title'(single line of text) because i have external vendors not in the AD and i am using workflows to set the column 'Title' so that it will populate depending on if i key in vendor or employee details.
As String, Login Name and User Id Number just shows my user log in credentials.
The only way this would work is i use 'Person or Group' column type with field as 'job title' then returning field as login name would display the employee's job title. However, i am trying to achieve this using 'single line of text' as i am creating a contacts list with both employees and external vendors details.
This is my current workflow so that i can populate both external vendor not in AD and employees.
