Embedded Users in Webhook

Hi all,

I am using a webhook to send messages to a telegram group when a table entry changes and I want to post the user that activated the change. I've been using %curuser% for that user, but when it posts to telegram it posts the user but always followed by some numbers. As an example:
NAME SURNAME <12345678.d912>

How can I get rid of these random numbers?

  • HI Ayalana,



    You can create a new formula text field with the following formula , substitute Record Owner filed to field of your choice 

    Few Examples
    UserToName([Record Owner], "FF")
    UserToName([Last Modified By], "FF")


    Then use this field in your webhooks 

    PS Nice Telegram Usage, I would love to know what you've done with this . We can connect on

      Hi!

      Thank you so much for the reply, it works perfectly. 

      I've built a ticketing system on QuickBase and a Telegram group is used to inform the agents that a reply had been made on the ticket and who replied.

        Glad to know this is working. 

        So via Webhook you trigger a telegram bot , very smart notification idea !
