    I frequently want to grab the name of the current logged in user in order to create a record of who added a comment in a log field. I have accomplished this in the past by adding a column to my list called CurrentLoggedInUser (single line of text), then creating a rule to populate it each time the form loads by setting its value to {currentUser}, but I’m sure I can do it more directly. Is there an internal DFFS function I can use in my custom javascript to grab the current user’s display name?

    You can use this in the Custom JS:

    var userInfo = spjs.utility.userInfo(;
    // userInfo is an object with multiple properties - use console.log(userInfo) to see all
    // Here is the title
