It’s not working because User Field names do not map onto User Custom Field names.
The concept of the “User Field” is broader than “User Custom Fields”, and involves various tables in the database. “User Custom Fields” refers to a single table in the database -
user_custom_fields - which the User Field functionality uses.
Behind the scenes User Fields are assigned a User Custom Field according to this naming system:
In your case the
myself field is probably assigned the user custom field
user_field_1 (assuming that’s the first user field you made).
user_field_1 into the User Custom Field input in the Profile Field action and it should work.
It’s definitely a bit confusing for the end user. Maybe I’ll also show a list of the User Field names (which would map onto the proper User Custom Field names), in addition to still allowing direct entry of User Custom Fields (which is necessary for any User Custom Field that’s not part of a User Field)
