In a workflow, I'm setting a field in the current form based on a lookup to a "Person Or Group" field. The problem is that this returns the network ID ( network\user), rather than the name.
I want to get the actual name instead. As a work around, I just used a Text field instead, which obviously allows me to get the field contents as it's just text, but then i can't use it to send emails to.
I could just have 2 fields for each person (1 Text type to get the name and 1 Person type to email), but that would be pretty clumsy and not ideal.
A computed field that provides a text version of the name as well could be an option, if it's possible?
