July 2017 Mission - Fix it and run!

Blog Post created by jackgelo Champion on Jul 6, 2017

Hi all and welcome to a new Community Mission!

 

In this mission you don't have to build a form, you don't have to build a workflow so..what you are requested to do?

Just a simple fix on an existing workflow that currently has some issues..attached to this post you can find all you need for your environment (there is a zip file for who is on O365 and one for on-premises).

 

You just need to have Nintex Workflow and Nintex Forms installed and then you can start setting up your personal playground.

 

How to setup the scenario:

  1. Import the three list templates that are in the zip (they template are for an English website)
  2. Create a list for each template (you should use template name as list name)
  3. In list "CommunityMissionDestination" you have to create a lookup column based on the settings shown in LookupConfiguration.png (the image is in the zip)
  4. In list "CommunityMissionSource" you have to import the Nintex Forms available in the zip and publish it
  5. In list "CommunityMissionSource" you have to import the workflow (for O365 users, remember to fill last action with valid credential) and publish it.

 

Now, what the workflow should do? Every time a new item is added in the CommunityMissionSource list, it should check the repeating section that is present in the form and create one item for each row in the CommunityMissionDestination list. That's all? Not exactly.. last requirement is that for item in CommunityMissionDestination, "Type 1" value in the lookup field should always be selected, even if it wasn't selected by the user in source item.

 

Once you've fixed the workflow, post your exported workflow as a document in the Nintex Gallery briefly explaining what you did! (Visit the space, click "actions" and then select "document" from the dropdown. You'll see a place to attach your file in the editor.)  Reply below with a link to it.
