Flow Question : What's the difference between "Modified By Display Name" and "Editor.DisplayName"?

Hi all -

 

I'm going through an excercise to move my flows to Solutions and for some reason some of the flows updated from "Modified By Display Name to Editor.Displayname.  Is OK? Do I need to change it back? 

 

The strange thing is I can't find Editor when I try to search in dynamic content.

Hi @simms7400,

 

Editor is the internal name of the field. Modified By is the display name of the same field. Same goes for Author and Created By 🙂

 

Below is an example of blog were all these internal names are listed:

Happy to help out! 🙂
