Getting the Creator rather than the date from Creation Log

Is there any way to get the Creator rather than the date from a Creation Log column?

Something like {item’s Creation Log : Name}?

I have an automation set up to notify the creator of an item that it has been marked as complete. The automation picks up the Creator to work out where to send the notification, but will only display the date in the message itself.


Hi Jon,

why do u not use the automation “assign creator to person” and a second automation to “notifiy person on finish”? And if u want to, u can protect this column by manual editing.

It is also possible to extract the creator out of the log column via formula column like {“Log”#Name} (Log = Columnname) - u cant notify them by this extraction.
