Hi :)

i'm creating a workflow that give the task to a person X to assign another task to another person. So when the workflow begans, X was invited to enter the name of the other person in a "user field" to enter the name of this person. I use the "Collect Data from User" action but when the action finishes, i get numbers like 26 or 28 for the user so i don't know how i can use this user field in another step of my workflow. So when a test the collect variable obtained by the Collect Action, it gives me a number and not the name of the person wich X has chosen.

Can you help me for this please

I get the same error. It seems to be user list item ID.

If you found the answer I would appeciate if you post it to the forum.

thanks in advance , Marina

I've got it!

The number you get is a Task ID of the task that is automatically created for collecting this data.

To get the value of your field you need to do 'Workflow lookup...' not on the 'Workflow Data' , but on 'Tasks' list further down in the drop-down list.

There you can use the task ID you've got in the workflow variable to find right task instance. Among the tasks fields you'll find your user field.

regards,

Marina
