Want to concatenate two fields using a SharePoint Designer workflow?
For this post, I’m going to concatenate Stuff and Junk, then update the Title column.
Open your List / Library using SharePoint Designer.
*Click on the List tab, then select Edit List in the Customize List section of the ribbon.
Once Designer opens, click on New… in the Workflows section.
Give your workflow a name, click OK.
In Step 1 of your workflow, click the text that says (Start typing or use……).
In there type: update list item
Then click enter.
Your workflow should now look like this:
Now click on this list
Doing this will open the Update List Item window.
After the window opens, click the Add… button on the right.
From the Set this field dropdown, select Title.
After you have selected Title, click on the … button above the Cancel button.
Clicking on … will open the String Builder window.
In the String Builder, add the fields Junk and Stuff. You can do this by click on the Add or Change Lookup button.
Click Ok, Ok, Ok.
The workflow action will now look like this:
One more step, in the ribbon, click on Workflow Settings in the Manage section.
In the Start Options section, select Start workflow automatically when an item is created, and Start workflow automatically when an item is changed.
Click Save, then click Publish.
To test, create a new item in your List / Library.
