Automating populating Summary with detail from other fields

I am working on an automation that takes values from a number of different fields, and edits the issue summary with those values.

However I need to be able to smart variable using a user picker (single) so that it outputs just a Name.

Is it possible to take the value, write it as plain text, then use that to add to the automation.

Here is a screen snip of the portion of automation i am trying to accomplish

Hi Mark - I don't see the screen snip - can you try to add that again? 

But basically you can Edit issue, select Summary and then in the Set value box use 

{{issue.Custom Picker.displayName}} where Custom Picker is the exact name of the field. This will put the name of the user picker value into the Summary field. Add any other text around that which you like.

This is my current flow, however when I use this smart value n an edit action on the summary, it shows an ID rather than an actual name, due to it being a user picker list I would assume

Use {{issue.Employee.displayName}}

I'm going to assume that's in documentation somewhere and I just completely missed it. But that is exactly what I am looking for Thank you very much!

Not a good idea to assume anything with Atlassian's documentation.  ;-)

Glad it is working for you!
