Is it possible to get the record owner's name without code?


In a case where we have Account and Opportunity object. From the Opportunity object, can we have a field that gets the Account Owner's Name without using a trigger?

I checked using a formula field and a workflow and the most that I can do in the formula is "Account.OwnerId". It won't allow me to have "Account.Owner.Name"

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

Effective Summer '13, you can accomplish this in a formula using the following syntax:

Account.Owner.FirstName & " " & Account.Owner.LastName

The syntax is a little different depending on whether the object supports Queues as owners, or just Users. For more information, see "Using the Owner Field" in Tips on Building Formulas.
