User Picker Field value showing as hexadecimal number

I am creating a subtask that will have in the description a field called Hiring Manager which is a User Picker. When I test the description shows a hexadecimal number (ex: 5ff81836332c3a01070b802b) instead of the user name. How do I get it to just show the user name?

Since the field is a user picker, try adding .displayName to the smart value, that should return the name instead of the internal Atlassian ID.
