Transition task based on logged in user to write variable to card

I know how to setup a transition task that will write a variable to the data card, however I want to drive this task based on the logged in user. We have two individuals that can approve drawings and send them to a "Released" state. Our drawing packages can be quite large so I want to write the approver and approver date to data card for all files that pass through the transistion. I need to setup two transitions, one for each user. Now the logical person would select the transition with his name on it however I want to ensure Fred can't use Berts transition and vice versa. This would be used for the checkers as well.

 

I use "Special Values" on the data cards like <Current State> and can use

<Current User (Login Name)> on the card as well. However I can't figure out how to use that information in a task.

 

Granted I may be over complicating the process but does anyone have any ideas or have done something like this?

 

Question;

If the manager signs the assembly card, approver and approver date entries can that be used to drive the rest of the files referenced to the assembly? I can't see it.

 

 

Thanks the help on this.
