User Name not showing


I set field name with User().FullName to get user name, and when I try to view the data that has been inputted in the SP List, the name field changes to the login user name
eg: User login "Franz" wants to see data from "Boy", but when the display appears, the field name "Boy" changes to "Franz"
My question is, how to make the field name match the inputted data?



Super User
Super User


Change your formula to the following:

   Coalesce(Parent.Default, User().FullName)
