I am using a reusable workflow to collect feedback on a document. One of the initiation form parameters is "owner" with the "person or group" information type. I am trying to get the "owner" parameter to populate in the workflow task column. When starting the workflow the column returns with an empty field.

So far I have tried:

  • Created a variable "owner_retainer"
  • Set owner_retainer to -1;#[%Parameter: Owner%] (as string)
  • Update task field


  • set task field to value | set owner to Parameter:owner

Along with various other combinations.

I have tried reviewing other answers found here and here but am unable to deploy them on my workflow. May I get some assistance with this. Feel free to send me links/resources where this questions has been answered before.

  • add log to history list at the starting of the workflow and see if you are getting value in owner parameter correctly or not. – Ganesh Sanap Mar 19 '20 at 3:32
  • I added Log Parameter:Owner in Before a Task is Assigned (change behavior of single task). In the workflow history I see my name in the description column. Should this be appended with something? – Alex Mar 19 '20 at 18:31
