In To Do list, no employee name is showed on the message triggered by workflow based on MDF. But Employee Name will be showed on the message triggered by standard field workflow.
Reproducing the Issue
- Create a MDF object
- Setup rule and workflow based on the MDF object
- Trigger the workflow to see the Message in To do List
As of now it is a Product limitation . The roadmap of the fix is B1705 release.
As a workaround you can use externalName field to save user's name it will help you to resolve your issue.
