For one of the implementations, I am using a basic SharePoint list form to add entries in a list, there is a workflow attached to it as well. On NewForm.aspx, I have a column called 'Requester' (people picker field) which I would like to set to Current user when the form is opened. I have seen couple of solutions using SPServices for this type of question but I do not want to leverage SPServices, is there a different approach that someone took and works, if so please share the code.
FYI, I am working with SharePoint online. Thanks in advance.
