Dumb question I know...but if I have a workflow that keeps line items on a list but updates specific fields on that line item to blank when it runs through a process, does my workflow setting need to be set up to run off of created or modified? Btw...my condition is "When Status equals Complete"Just trying to understand the way Nintex thinks. I have trouble with the workflows running based off of fields. Works fine manually ran. Thanks.Cassy Freeman
Hi all,I'm having issues configuring an External Data Column with Nintex Forms 2013.I've already created my External Content Type and if I create an external list based on it, I can see the correct values.In my form I've put an External Data Column, not connected to any list column, and I've tied it to that External Content Type, I've changed the display format as Dropdown list and I've selected one of the columns (text type) returned by that content type as field to display. (Have a look on the configurationin the image).If I look at the published form, the dropdown field list is empty, do you have any suggestion on how to solve this?Thank you!!Giacomo
I have a workflow which has, as the final step, a Create New List Item control, which fails, causing a fatal error, about 95% of the time. The error message is Coercion Failed: Unable to transform the input lookup data into the requested type. The purpose of this Create Item task, is to record the approval history, so that when the workflow activity purges from the list item, the approval history can be easily read from a Multiple lines of text (MLT) list column, rather than going to the workflow history list, and finding the associated line items with the item ID. In my create item control, I am including the Title from the context item, the Item ID from the context item, and the All Approvers' Comments from the Workflow Context data. I am certain that the point of failure is the All Approvers' Comments, writing to the MLT field. The MLT field set up is in attached image, although I have attempted to change the type of text to Plain Text, and still have the failure.I have another w
How can I make a PEOPLE CONTROL outline in red when this field is required at save?notice how the other fields automatically outline in red----why doesn't the POPLE control have this option?Do you know how to make it outline in red?See the example below where I attempted to save this form and got the error messages at the top of the form in addition to two of the required fields to be outlined in red, but the People control has not red outline.I will also send a screen shot of my PEOPLE control settings.
I have a document library where I have added a Content Control to the template for a content type in order to update the version number on the document using the "Update Document" action. I got the idea from reading Write to Documents using the Update document action However, for some reason, I can't get the content control to update. The workflow I have runs fine with no errors, it just doesn't update the content control.I verified that the name of the Content Control in the document and what I'm using in the workflow matched. Anyone have any ideas on what might be causing the issue? Since this is a custom content type, do I need to update the template at the site level or the list level? Initially I was using a regular document as the template instead of an actual template document, so I thought that might be the issue. But after I changed it I was still having the issue.

Class Attendee> 2. tab to phone number> 3. then tab to LocationINSTEADIt starts at Class Attendee> tabs to Location and TOTALLY SKIPS the phone field.Can you help?
I have been tasked to create a new on-boarding workflow. The new form will be capturing sensitive information for the new employee and I need some suggestions on the best way to protect this information:I am currently thinking of have 5 potential workflows, the first workflow will automatically start when the new list item is created, this potentially kickoff the other 4 workflows for HR, Payroll, IT and Health NurseOnce the on-boarding form is submitted I want to hide the values from being seen on the main form and restrict access inside of sharepoint.. If this is not possible I am thinking of making a complex math operation to manipulate the current sensitive input to update the sharepoint list item with a UDA and when I need to extrapolate the data for Payroll reverse it and store it into a variable.I am looking for others input and possible solutions that you may have implemented in your organizations.Thank you
I want to add an image to my Nintex Mobile form that I need to view from a phone. I'm currently testing on an iPhone. I know from the documentation that the image control is supported and should show an image if configured correctly. You wouldn't think there is too much to configure on an image control, but I can't seem to get it to show up in Nintex Mobile Phone app.So I added a png file to the design canvas and it wouldn't show. It was an image with no brackground, so I added a white background and tried that. Still nothing showed. In the image below, it should shot just above the Contract Type in the blank space.Interesting enough, if you click or poke that space, you see the followingSo I know for certain that the image is there, but it just isn't showing. Any ideas?Bbelow is the design canvas.
I have a form which goes to a team to complete a request. The issue I am having is that once you click submit it goes a through a workflow process which is working ok. But the Information Under the Borrower, Director, AML Complaint Question disappears. The whole form I have set the fields to be all mandatory. Does anybody know how I can get this fixed or if I have stuffed up something?

Hello!I would like to delete Site Workflow History Entries from a Website. I have already deleted the Workflow (it isn't running any more), but the Entries are still there.I think this is for SharePoint 2010 and also 2013 (i am using 2013).Here my search ways:- Contextmenu (top right) - Nintex Workflow 2013 - View Workflow History -> I can see several Entries with the already deleted Workflow- Site Settings - Manage Workflow history lists -> The History lists are empty (0 items)- Site Settings - Manage Workflow Inventory -> Workflow is not available (already deleted)- Site Settings - Recycle Bin -> Empty (also the Admin-Bin)I have found in several discussions points for Library and List Workflows, but nothing to clean up this Site Workflow history.More investigations show me, that the Workflows aren't available in Nintex, because the graphical view is "not available". So this can only be a SharePoint thread.Does anyone have an Idea?Big thanks,Daniel
Hi,We've set up an event notification for one of our SharePointEvents and it sends without a problem. Message format is HTML.The problem is it appends all dynamic content (Smart objects etc.) of the body to the end of the email again.Below is an example of the body set up per the event settings in k2:You have been assigned a task.The document, [itemname] has been [if statment returning strings "edited" or "created"] to review the task / document.Requested by : [User]Note: Please add a comment should the document need to be amended.And this is what the email comes through as:You have been assigned a task.The document, [itemname] has been [if statment returning strings "edited" or "created"] to review the task / document.Requested by : [User]Note: Please add a comment should the document need to be amended.[itemname][edited/created][user]Do any of you have an idea why the above is being appending the the body of the email notification?Appreciate any help offered. Thanks,Sean
Hi all,When building a form to be used with Nintex Mobile, it is very easy to let the user use her device's camera to take a photo and annotate it (draw on it), and then have it attached to the item.However, when using the desktop form on my device (iPad, Android etc), I can still create an attachment using the camera, but I don't get an option to edit or annotate the image.Any ideas on how to accomplish this?RegardsLeif
Hello, I'm looking for a way to extract the 'day' portion of an items created date.I'd like to use an 'if' function within my workflow to say: IF the created day is before or equal to ( # ) THEN do this... ELSE... I have a feeling the answer is buried within the regular expression builder, but I'm not sure.Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you, Bobby

Hello,I'm developping a little app to export processes (instead of using K2 Studio)Here is my code[quote user= new XmlDocument();doc.Load(fullPath); Export expt = new Export();expt.Xml = doc.OuterXml; K2Manager k2m = new K2Manager();k2m.Login(exportServer,5252);k2m.Export(expt);using K2Manager API. the xmldocument contains the export xml file.The export seems to work a little since I can see a new process version but in fact, the process starts but does not reach the first activity (it is in state "Running" but not "Active")...In help doc, I saw the method AddReference in the Export class but don't know how to use it. Maybe I need it to completely success in process exportDoes anyone can help me?
I was having a problem calling a K2 process using the K2 Rom. I got "A database error occured". I looked at the configuration and the user permissions etc. for an entire day. I finally tried using the code to submit to another service and it worked fine. So, I recompiled and redeployed my service without any coding changes and it worked fine. There were no errors in any of the logs regarding issues with the service. Does anyone have a method for verifying that will log errors during deployment?
Task status - not started. Can i use pause inside flexitask to delay approval email till the task is completely created ?
i have a parallel approval scenario, where a task needs to be approved by all.. users are complaining that they are getting a task locked message. Can we put a kind of a pause between 2 approval email notifications or do something to avoid getting the lock message ?I am not using parallel action as at the time of workflow initiation i do not know how many approvers are there for the next step. I am using flexitask and set it to approved by all.
Hi,I'd like to create custom ASP.NET forms for my blackpoint workflow. I created a custom ASP.NET page, but when I got the DataFields, only a few properties had value (ex: Value, Metadata). For example I'd like to get the type of the field to generate the appropriate controls... (I can store this info in Metadata, but if it has a Type property why do this...)Someone has been tried it before? Thanks,hvdeath
Hi,I am trying to populate a list with links to download documents from a library in another site collection with a site workflow in Nintex workflow 2013 using the query list workflow action and a CAML query.What is the best CAML query to use?Will I have to use a regular expression to build up the link?Would it be better to use the call web service workflow action instead?Thanks,Chuck
Hi All,I'm not sure if this question has been asked but I have created a multi-step form using the tutorial provided in this community. It works great and all but the issue that i'm having is that when i click the previous page to see if I have completed the form correctly the form goes down and I have the scroll down and look for it. can this be fixed? Example below...Hope this makes senseStep 1. This is the form initially.Step 2: The next page of the formStep 3: when I click on previous this is what it looks like..Step 4: this is where the information goes when i scroll down. How do I make sure the form is like step 1?
I'm having a bizarre issue with the Change Content Type control.I have a library with multiple Content Types. When I use the OOTB SharePoint form I have no issue.The minute I try to add a nintex form to the default content type and apply it, I get the following problem:-Upload a doc, try to change the content type from the drop down. Fill out all required metadata. Click Save.-Content Type change is not applied, still says it's the default content type (top one in the list).I have run dozens of scenarios and this always breaks when I try to add a simple nintex form, even if it's the default layout without any changes except adding the content type selector control.Any ideas?
