Using SP2013, SPD2013, 2013 Workflow
I'm building some workflows that, at various stages, need to clear the data from a field. In this case it is a "Person or Group" field. The way I'm trying to do it is using the
Update List Item action on the
Current Item, adding the field to the dialog and leaving the value blank. This seems to work for strings, but the
Person or Group field (when examined after the update) contains a value of:
Is there another way to blank out this field or set it to null?
Quick update: Tried creating a workflow variable (string) and not assigning it a value, then setting the field equal to that variable does not work. Since the variable is blank it does not show up as an option when setting the value of the field.
I should also note that in a 2010 workflow (on the same 2013 list), using the
Update List Item action and setting the field to a blank value works perfectly, it only stopped working when I rebuilt the workflow in the 2013 format.
