Name in Person or Group field displaying as String RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a workflow that takes the "Assigned To" person of a task and inserts it into a "Person or Group" field on a list.  The insertion is working fine, but the display is not what I want.  Instead of seeing the Display Name (e.g. Smith, John), I am seeing the String value (e.g. i:0#.w|ad\jsmith).  I don't have this issue with my other Person/Group fields.  Any idea on what is the problem?

  • Dumb oversight on my part.  The "Show Field" setting for my Person/Group was set to Account.  A switch to Name solved the problem.
