Lookup user info to store manager's name for approval

First of all I'd like to commend you for your efforts. I know we're all busy and the fact that you've donated your time to this is greatly appreciated.

Quick question, do you think I could use the lookup user info action to grab the manager's name from the creator of the list item's profile and create the approval task for that creator's manager?

Thanks for your time!

You could infact do that with Lookup User Activity. There is a known issue though, if the manager field is blank in user profile, the activity will throw an error. This will be fixed in the next release.

Hope this heps
