Attachment validation on NF for Office 365

Blog Post created by alexjolynintex Employee on Jul 30, 2015

Hi all,

 

The July release brings some interesting features. One of those is the ability to create attachment rules on Nintex Forms for Office 365.

 

Once you open your newly created form on O365, you see only the title and attachment displayed, right?

Basically the validation section allows you to create the following rules :

 

  • Minimum amount of attachments (with customization of the error message)
  • Maximum amount of attachments (from Custom to Unlimited)

 

Note that for those amount you still can use item properties or inline functions to provide a dynamic amount of attachments according to your item!

  • Allowed files format - One format per line (with customization of the error message)

 

So now you can say that you want between 1 and 4 attachement files and they have to be Pdf or Word docs!!

 

Have fun!
