Sharepoint Workflow with Infopath. People Picker "Return field as" is greyed out

Answers

  • I was able to get this working. Here is what I did

    1) In infopath, I publish the people picker control's AccountID and select merge as the function

    2) in Sharepoint designer i used the replace action:

    Replace i: with ;i: in [people picker control] (Output to Variable:[your variable])

    "i:" is actually preceded with a, enter/return key. I don't know if this makes a difference to be honest.

    3)In sharepoint designer, set the email as follows:

    I was able to email two people at the same time with this method. I didn't try it beyond two people but I'm assuming it would work.
