Formula text field = list user fields

    Why can i not include a [user] or [user list] type field in a formula text field?  I want to make the text field = user field.  

    What are the limitations when working with user fields?

    I think you have to explicitly convert them to text:

    ToText([user])

    This produces the user's email address when I include it as a part of my text formula field. Do you know how to make it display the user's name instead?

    UserToName([User]) will work for a User field

    That worked perfectly.  Now how good are your webhook skills?

    I have mad webhook skills. However, tonight I am giving a 5 minute lightning talk on Service Workers at my local JavaScript meetup and all my time today is going into trying to fit my presentation into such a short time frame. Ask about webhooks in another thread and either someone else will answer today or I will answer tomorrow.

    Service Workers coming to Empower 2017. Be there!
