Hi Basem,

There is an Employee field on Purchase order that you can set up at the time of PO creation using Workflow / Script and then use the same field to Print the Created by on the Purchase Order PDF.

Alternatively, you can create Custom List field with Employess and then perform above mentioned action.

I created a custom filed to list the employee list, and I created a workflow “set field value” for current user, and it works fine

Hi basem,

You should be able to access fields from the associated Employee record with a further dot,

e.g. ${record.recordcreatedby.firstname}

Thanks Chris, but no result found, this one “recordcreatedby” is the ID, I doubt that we can go through “recordcreatedby” and get the firstname or any field, because “recordcreatedby” is not record. however thanks a lot for your reply
