  • Hi cal,

    Here is the resolution for you.

    1. Add a parameter to the data view web part first. We can get current login user with following parameter.
      Name: Param1
      Parameter Source: Server Variable
      Server Variable Name: LOGON_USER
    2. Modify the XSLT to following.

     <xsl:if test="@HiringManager=substring-after($Param1,’\’)">
      <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="ddwrt:AutoNewLine(string(@Confidential))">

               3. If HiringManager is a user type of field, change it to @HiringManager.title

    Thanks & Regards,
