Unexpected error when setting default value in drop down in a Request Offering

Version 1

    Details

     

    I have an "Employee" drop-down selection in a Service Request Offering which is validated against the picklist "Active Employee List by Full Name" (see A). 

    A.

    The "Employee" field is set to default to Current User: Display Name (see B).

    B.

    When I preview the form, the Employee field shows an error that indicates that the Employee field has an incorrect value. When I re-select the same employee name the error goes away.

    The name is valid, how can I stop error from occurring?

     


    Resolution

    Since the stored Value Field of the pick list is LoginID, you should use the expression $Currentloginid() to set the default value in image B above, rather than Current User: Display Name function.
