Create a text string

Use the Create a text stringaction A tool for building the processes, logic, and direction within workflows. to join text and variables together and output as one Text variable value.

For example, users fill out a Nintex form, which includes two fields: First name and Last name. Both the first name and last name are required later in the workflow as separate variables, but the workflow will also send multiple email notifications to the named person in the form.

You configure the Create a text string action to combine both the First name and Last name variables into one Full name variable, which you add into the message body of several Send an email actions.
