I have a Task list and it has a Requester column of "Person or Group" type. So when a clicks on NEW ITEM, I want the user name to be saved in teh Requester Column. How can I accomplish that.
Thanks a lot

You want it to display the username instead of the default display name of the person? Or do you want to pre-specify the requestor to be the person that created the item?
For the former, just edit the column in the task list and change the display value from 'Display Name with Presence' to Username.
For the latter, just rename Created to Requestor.

There are different solutions for this. For example as above, just use the "created by" column.
Or you can use a new "single line of text"-column where default value a calculated value [Me]
