      I have a field (Assignee) that I want to update on saving form from information from another field (Investigator). User adds an investigator (people picker) to new form and on save I want to update a 2nd people picker field (assignee) with same name(s) as entered in Investigator field on new form.

      I have a rule that update the assignee on save by rule using set field value
      Field Assignee Vale {Investigator}

      However each time the form is saved the Assignee field is still blank.

      See screen shots attached.

      Any ideas on how this field can be updated from information from other field?

      Hi,
      I think the reason for this not working is that setting a people picker is done asynchronously and this means triggering it on save won’t work because the form will be submitted by the time the people picker has finished setting the value.

      You must either write the value to a single line of text field, or set the trigger on change of the first people picker field.
