String Expressions

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

'Welcome123'

This results in Welcome123

 

Return only the first letter of an employee's name.

Person.FirstName.Substring(0, 1)

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.
