String expressions are used to manipulate strings and always result in a string value.
Here are a few commonly used string expressions:
Concatenate 2 UKG fields to create a single string value
Person.FirstName + ' ' + Person.LastName
This results in John Doe
Concatenate 2 UKG fields and another string value
Person.LastName + ', ' + Person.FirstName
This results in Doe, John
Concatenate a string value and a UKG field
'Department - ' + CostCentre1.Level1
This results in Department - 12345
Write out a constant string value
This results in Welcome123
Return only the first letter of an employee's name.
This results in J
String expressions allow one to combine any aspect of UKG fields as well as patterns to create the ideal Active Directory attribute value.
