Sharepoint workflows from a list: email to multiple users
Posted on 2009-04-23
1 custom list with a lookup field. The lookup field is displaying user names from another list. The user may select multiple people from this list.
1 workflow. The workflow is simply supposed to send email to the user or users selected through the lookup field.
The problem: if I use Name(display) in the lookup, the workflow sees those names as strings without any related information (such as their domain name or email address). If I use Name (by itself), the workflow works properly because it sees "domain\username". However this is not a good solution for the users as they don't know the "username" of the users; They know them by their full name or Name(display)
