Thus this will address the questions such as

  • How to get User’s First Name in the SharePoint Workflow
  • How to get User’s Last Name in the SharePoint Workflow
  • How to get User’s Birthday  in the SharePoint Workflow
  • How to get User’s Email in the SharePoint Workflow
  • How to get User’s Manager in the SharePoint Workflow

as well as huge information list that will populated by the user profile service.

Hi Melick. I cannot see 'User Profiles' in Define Workflow Lookup's Data Source field. Any idea why not? "My sites" is running and user profile synch service is also running. We have SP 2010 Enterprise installed.
