userprofilelookup Runtime Function
I am pleased to announce the UserProfileLookup runtime function has been added to the Rules Builder and Calculated Value control.
Please be aware that this function requires granting the Nintex app additional permissions to read user profiles. Your tenant administrator will be required to configure the app permissions. See the online help available at https://help.nintex.com/en-US/o365/#o365/O365Forms/Admin/UserProfileAdmin.htm?Highlight=user profile
I have allowed the form access to user profiles (as per link provided), and have added a calculated field with the following formula:
userProfileLookup(Current User (Email), "Manager")
I cant get it to work - it shows #Value! every time. What am I missing?
Thanks Euan, I will do that.
If this requires access over and above the access given to the 365 workflows (there is a setting in the workflow window), then I haven't given them access. If this needs to be set above the Site/Site Collection level, then I will have to request someone to set that...?
Euan, I was experiencing very much the same result. As stated in my last comment. It's not quite clear how the values/fields in the brackets are to be edited. Trying various combinations give results like Prasanna (i.e. #Value!) or nothing.

@Euan Gamble- I am still not able to get this to work in our tenant. I see this error message in the calculated value control: "#Value!"
I would like to know what I am missing.
I'm still not managing to get this work (on a site where the workflow can correctly query the user details).
The layout shown in the form designer is not very clear as to what is expected:
Should this be used as-is?
Or should this work?
userProfileLookup("Current User (Email)", "Department")
The help link does not seem to show anything related to this yet.(Maybe ready, but not pubilshed?)
Good to hear this is starting.

Please release this function it's really necessary!

Please make it happen really soon or give some time frame when this will happen. I'm really stuck in a project and I have no idea how to display the Phone number and the Email (e-Mail display in NF is not right) . Also I am not authorised to upload JS or grant the app more rights.
Good news. Can't wait.... Planned means what kind of time frame?

Same with us. We are desperatly seeking such a function. Please make it happen soon.
I would realy like this sooner than later. It would be great if the People Picker control could harness the lookup behind the Person or Group column in SharePoint Lists - which would give us access to the following useful information from the user profile:
Picture (3 different sizes)
Name (with picture and details)
Will this feature be available in O365? Thank you.
The Emerson team would be interested to know if there is an ETA on this function.
Any update on when this feature will be available for o365?
It would be great to have an update on this.
