Hello! I have a form with a Choice column and 4 text boxes with show/hide rules based on the Choice. I am trying to figure out how to send the text of ‘shown textbox’ to a Word document template. Not sure if it’s possible since it’s not a column. Is there a workaround? Thank you!SharePoint 2019
Hi Team, We have Nintex workflows deployed in SharePoint 2013 On premise application. Kindly assist with the below queries regarding the workflows There is a “Start Workflow” action in Workflow A which triggers Workflow B. Once Workflow B got completed, instead of proceeding to the next step in Workflow A, a second instance of Workflow B is triggered and is getting errored with the message “Failed to start Workflow B as another instance is running on the item”. So, how can we prevent the second instance of workflow B from getting triggered Also, we have observed slowness in the execution of workflow actions. Nintex Workflow History list has more than 100,000 items. Will deleting some items from the workflow improve the workflow execution speed. Also, will there be any impact in deleting the items from Nintex Workflow History list.
I created a Nintex workflow in our SharePoint 2016 environment. It is a website workflow that runs every evening and searches a list for new items that were created on that day. The workflow then sends an email to a specific SharePoint group to inform the group members about the new list items.However the group members do not receive the email even though the workflow notification action was successful. I talked to our exchange admin and he confirmed that the mails did not leave SharePoint; so I assume that the workflow is not working correctly.A weird behavior is: when I tested the workflow there were only two test users in the group. While testing the emails reached the test users mailbox. Then I added the real users (about 30 users) and the workflow stopped sending the email (even if the workflow was successful). I checked every user account in our AD but they seem to be fine (no missing email-addresses etc.).Does anybody have an explanation?
Form not displaying correctly only when using a workflow or power automate to creates duplicate list item
I have a list that has a very complex form. It has been in use for a few years now. I created a power automate to create a new list item using a manual “Automate” drop down trigger. It creates the new list item and when viewing the data in the grid all information included in the request has been populated.When you open the form and click edit the entire lower half of the form is missing. I have reset my form and then imported it again, and then ran the flow again, same issue.If I select New item - the form is fine. Recreating the form from scratch is not an option as it has many rules and took days to build.This is the original item (correct) form view: This is the duplicated list items form view:
Hi fellow Nintex users, Experts,May I ask if Nintex workflow is able to detect newly uploaded document to a particular folder? My users will need to carrry out some other actions after at least one document is uploaded. Thanks in advance for your kind assistance.
The Nintex Site Workflow ASPX page doesn’t appear to provide any way to purge “previous versions” of site workflows.For list workflows, one can use the List Settings/Workflow Settings do manage the previous versions.Can you provide similar instruction/guidance for Site Workflows?TIA
HI, I have a request to create a site workflow for selected items (based on a condition) in a list and to update item permissions. I have 60K items in a list but the condition will filter them to about 2600. I would like to run the workflow in batches to update the item permissions. I have used Start ID and End ID before but this would mean running it on all the items. Can someone please advise on update items in batches of 100 or something like it? Thanks in advance. Kam
Using SharePoint 2016 on premises, Need the correct syntax for URL that will start a site workflow and pass a string value to a workflow variable. I have searched this Community in several ways and not found the solution.I have a List Item Workflow that creates a To-Do Task for someone to complete. It sends that individual an email notification. The end result is to have the individual simply click a link in the email notification that will start a site workflow to mark the task as Completed.I can add a link to the task itself (using the Common:ApprovalURL), but the task form does not open correctly on the individuals iPhone (I have tried creating a Classic Nintex form for mobile/iPhone, a Responsive form, etc. The Out-of-the-Box generic form is the one that displays and it doesn't fit the small screen. If you select to display as it would on a regular computer browser, it's difficult to see and does not center on the screen. The site has elected not to use the Nintex phone apps and so
Error performing database operation. System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater.
I have a workflow that uses an “Execute SQL” action to connect to an Oracle database that is failing after moving my SharePoint farm to a new server. The workflow used to work on the old server, but on the new one, I get this error: Error performing database operation. System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater. I just installed Oracle 12.2.0 client using the Oracle install procedure, but it’s still not working. Can someone assist?

Hi all, I’m creating a List and Form, say List A and Form A. In Nintex list settings, I’ve created a column of type ‘Lookup’ whose drop-down values are from another list, say, List B. Is it possible to filter through these drop-down values such that each value is associated with a name in List B? That is, when a user enters his name in Form A, only values associated to his name are listed in the Form A Lookup drop-down values. Thanks for any help!Regards.
I am running into an issue where attachments sometimes do not open/download from the nintex form they are attached to. The issue does not occur on every form submitted, and there isn’t a particular file type that seems to be the cause. I’ve cleared my browser cache, but the issue persists. If I open the site in Incognito mode, the attachments do open. Anyone have an idea on how to fix this issue?
My Nintex Workflow creates Nintex Workflow Tasks with Nintex Forms in a SharePoint 2016 subsite. Everything works as expected, except the task notification that is send to the user. I edited the task notification in the request approval action but SharePoint still sends the default task notification.I even edited the notification templates on the website settings but SharePoint still sends the default e-mail.Is there something that I am doing wrong?
Upgraded from SP 2013 to SP 2016 on Monday. We’ve used Nintex Workflow since SP2010 starting in 2012, jsyk. The upgrade went smooth, no workflow errors, etc. The one oddity is intermittent missing progress links under the workflow column. This is universal across all 8 site collections, one of which has several InfoPath form libraries. Every form library’s workflow list is doing it. Any ideas? I have NOT run a final psconfig because the forms and workflows and reporting are running well, and we needed to get the system back to the users. Here’s what we are seeing. BTW, this is an internal instance, not public facing:
Hello! Happy Friday. On SP 2013, we’re looking to create a HTML table output from a repeating section that contains choice fields and list-lookups. Is there a way to insert the actual text, rather than the item #/choice #? Current Output Form:Item = Look-up field (referencing another list), while item status = drop-down choice. Hoping there could be an ootb solution for this. Thank you for clarity and guidance!
We are using Nintex Forms 2019 on-prem and would like to know if there is a way to use this functionality without going into Edit Mode. The form has several sections, which were created using panels. A choice field was created with a 'choice button' for each panel. Using a Rule on each panel, a panel can be selected, which causes the others to be hidden to simplify the form. For instance, when the Software Assessment panel is selected, the other panels are hidden from view until a different one is selected. The issue with this functionality is that the only way a user can move through the panels is to be in Edit Mode. In Edit Mode, users have the potential to arbitrarily make changes where they did not intend to. Is there like functionality in Nintex on-prem that allows a user to move through the panels without being in Edit Mode?
Images are not being displayed when uploaded to a nintex form. /SiteCollectionImages/_layouts/15/NintexForms/Modern/NewForm/14517-image.png If we change the destination library when uploading the image then it displays, the images in the NewForm folder above also show as broken links from within SharePoint.
I’m using the fn-IsMemberOfGroup on a Nintex Form on a SharePoint Online list. The function doesn’t seem to work correctly with a SharePoint group that has security groups on it. It only seems to work correctly if we have individual names listed in that group. Is that by design? The use case here is that this SharePoint Online site is connected to a Microsoft 365 group, so “members” are getting added to the security group and not the SharePoint Online group. The SharePoint Online group only has one item in it: the security group that contains all of the members.
Hello,I have multiple lookup columns with certain values(Column A with values a,b,c and Column B with x,y,z ), now I have a new lookup column C and I want the value to be a,b,c,x,y,z . All these lookup columns are connected to same master list . But through the workflow when I update it saves only first value i.e. “a”.Is there any solution for this ?
Hi all, I have review task that I’d like to be automatically completed if the following occurs:Reviewer name is removed from list of reviewer “Status” is changed I have a branch of my workflow that will wait until an update occurs in the “Status” and ends the workflow subsequently completing all pending tasks. However, I need help figuring out a way to automatically complete the task when the reviewer changes. I currently have a while that will check, but since these review tasks can take up to a few weeks for people to complete, this while loop will reach its maximum loops and error. However I don’t want add an extended delay to the loop either because I’d like the response be as quick as possible when a reviewer is removed. Thoughts? Thanks
