In my situation, I run a daily check of data within a list. Depending on dates, I may email the originator for action. I need to add a couple new checks. I built a component workflow (Email WF) that emails either Warning #1 to the originator or Warning #2 to the originator. I will be doing the component WF synchronously to avoid blocking in the database/SharePoint list.I can call this component WF by looping in the calling WF. I would call the component WF once per loop with the ID number of the list item. This may mean calling the component WF up to 25 times each morning.The other option would be to change the component WF to loop through a collection of ID#’s and call it with the collection. The calling WF would only need to call the component WF once with collection of up to 25 ID numbers.My question: Which is more efficient? Calling multiple times with 1 ID or Calling once with collection of IDs.Thanks
We have a problem with flexi tasks in Nintex (126.96.36.199 latest version). It seems related to the december SP2019 CU. When a user wants to handle a task (which was already started before the CU, so with a running workflow). An error occurs. This is the ULS:Failed to retrieve form from workflow. Error: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: s. Stack trace: at System.IO.StringReader..ctor(String s) at Nintex.Workflow.WorkflowConfig2010.LoadWorkflowConfig(String configXml) at Nintex.Workflow.Forms.ControlTemplates.TaskForm.GetWorkflowConfig() at Nintex.Workflow.Forms.ControlTemplates.TaskForm.GetForm(String formKey, FormData formData, Boolean hasEnterpriseLicense) b8b68da0-cd82-0049-f307-c0152e223f98 Anybody an idea what the cause can be and how to resolve this? Thanks.
Custom JS in Form Settings strips CR LF (on prem 2019) All, Looking for some clues. When entering JS into the Form Settings section of a form, after pasting the text into the field, many of the carriage returns and line feeds are stripped from the entry. This is seen upon re-opening the form settings. When there are // comments in the JS code, this creates HUGE problems in that the code won't run since comment lines may extend forever. Additionally, this makes it a TOTAL PAIN to read the code in that box - or even copying to another editor -- as it all needs to be reformatted. Thoughts? Thanks, jeff HEXEDITOR Dumps of before and after below:
I have a date field with the below settings under Control Settings:Use a regular expression: yes Regular expression: < Today() Regular expression error message: Date completed must occur before todayWhen initially creating the form, I intentionally left out the date and it caught the error - GREAT!However, when I go back to the same instance and add the correct date that was BEFORE today’s date...the error remains on the form even with the correction.Do you have a solution for this? Thank you!
Hi All, This is related to SharePoint 2016 On Prem (not hybrid), patched to Nov 2022.We are experiencing an issue with a select number of workflows in a site collection where a list item is created, a workflow starts and processes, however once it gets to the flexi-task, it will generate one task, then about 10-15 seconds later, generate another. it alternates between generating two and four tasks total. this issue also presents when the workflow is manually rerun. some workflows (which contain flexi-tasks) in the same site DO NOT have this issue (yet).All but the latest task work, with the previous iterations of the task generating a “sorry, something went wrong” page. When checking ULS logs for the correlation ID (from the error page mentioned above), there are three errors that jump out(<Task URL>): Nintex.Workflow.NWHumanApprovalTaskListNullException: The associated Task List is null (Build: 4630) Failed to handle form host page on initialize event. Error: Object Reference no
Hi All, Trying to figure out on how to Restrict specific Dates in the Leave Form. in a month there some days that is blocked it will invalidate if they select the Restricted date. and if the Restricted date are included in the selected date range. for example, if date 11/17/2022 is Restricted it will invalidate this selection and will not be able to submit the form. thank you!
Hello!I would like to update multiple items which are filtered by a date/time column in the list so that I only get the items where the date/time column is set to a timestamp before now. As you can see in the screenshot attached (sorry, it’s German), I calculate a date (current date with current time) and put it to a workflow variable (v_DateTime_date and v_DateTime_txt). After that I would like to update multiple items where the column “Datum bis” is before v_DateTime_date.It looks like that the filter checks only the date but not the time. Elements, where the column “Datum bis” is set to a timestamp before today, are found and updated. Elements, where the column “Datum bis” is set to a timestamp earlier on the current day, are not found and not updated.So my questions are:Is this a known limitation of Nintex for SharePoint 2019? Is there a different way to achieve the descripted goal? Any hints? By the way: It seems that delete multiple items acts in a different way and the time is a
On our SharePoint environment I’ve created a simple list which will be used for whistleblowers to reveal information. We have a checkmark on the form where they can specify if they want to do the report anonymously or not. SharePoint has 2 standard list columns ‘Created by’ and ‘Modified by’ which always get the logged in username. Is there a way through a workflow (maybe use 2 seperate lists with a copy mechanism or….?) how we can get these reports 100% anonymous?
I have installed Nintex 2016 on a new 2016 SharePoint Multi-Server farm that was built using MinRoles. I installed it on the Central Admin Server and it seem that the WSP need to be deployed on the Web Front End servers ( came to this conclusion after it wouldn’t deploy on the primary Central Admin server). So I opened Central Admin on the Web Front End server and tried to deploy NInextworkflow2016core.wsp - it seems to run but Central Admin does not show it as being deployed after it has run. However, looking at the wsp it does say is has successfully deployed:Checking with Powershell shows none of the wsps as being deployed so I don’t believe this has worked. I’m seeing no errors anywhere, so can anyone shed any light as to why this is not working?
We are currently testing our new SP 2019 environment with Nintex forms & workflows. We were able to build both form & workflow and run test. The problem now is we are not able to view the Nintex Workflow history associated with an item or for the running workflow. It only shows up to where the red line or arrow. No scrolling bar showing or expanded button displayed to view the rest of the workflow to see the path it's taken.Appreciate any help on this.
After creating new database for nintex WF, we noticed strange behavior, for example some action if we put it into workflow and trying to publish workflow its keep asking for a user name and password. For example : if i create workflow with 1 action "" create item "" then trying to publish this workflow it is keep asking for credential
I have a New Responsive Form. I set a field called Requestor with the Created By user. Requestor is set to Enforce Unique Values.When a user clicks Submit it throws an error but it isn’t user friendly.With InfoPath we did a count of IDs where the Requestors were equal then setting a field with the results. If that value was greater than 0 we hid the section holding the fields and showed a Section that said you have already submitted a request. I am trying to replicate this in the Nintex Form but can’t figure out a Rule Formula that will do this.
Anything we search for issues/fixes for Nintex forms or workflows now does not return any results? Everything is getting redirected to “https://community.nintex.com/” which does not contain anything or the search simply does not work. Is this gonna be fixed or Nintex want users to stop using its products/services?
I have a Nintex form (On Prem) that contains control descriptions but want those to be hidden once the form is submitted. So that when the submission is being review by the team that manages the list, they are not cluttered with the description that they do not need. Only the customer needs the description, so we only need it to show when the form is being utilized initially.
Need to know the validation rule for a required field based on a multi select field. My research shows I have to use “inArray”, but it is not working for me. Example requirement: Field 1, “IT equipment” with choices: computers, monitors, accessories (multi-select)Field 2, “Accessories” with choices: mouse, keyboard, headphones (mutli-select - and only appears if ‘accessories” is selected from Field 1Field 3, “Number of computers”Filed 4, “Number of keyboards”Q1. Need validation rule to make a multi-select field (Field 2) a required field based on selection of multi-select field (field 1)Q2. Need validation rule to make a text/number field (field 3 or field 4) required based on multi-select field (field 2)Any assistnace would greatly be appreciated.
Hello, I looked in the knowledge database and I could not see what I’m looking for. I would like to know if there is a way (PowerShell possibly?) to list the Nintex Live forms that are published for a site? Is there a way to remove the published forms from the Nintex cloud so they don’t show up anymore? We are uninstalling the Nintex Live on our 2016 SharePoint server but I found a link that we knew of and the form still shows up. I would like to find all of the published Live forms to the cloud and remove them. Thanks, Darin
This is for an on-prem Sharepoint 2010 workflow. Migration underway to SPO but still have a couple left on old system. My workflow has a state machine.One of the states has a parallel action. One side waits until 6 questions have been answered on form, the other side has a task assigned to the user. Once all the fields are answered it's supposed to auto complete the task. It seems to fail here a lot, but not all the time. I cannot figure out why. The only error displayed is “an error has occurred”. The log files don’t give me anything different. Any idea why this is?
Hi everyone,I created an approval workflow with the Flexi Task, you can only choose 2 answers (yes or no).No matter what kind of behaviour I try i always end up with the error “Answer not required” when there ara more than 2 people involved in the process.Does anyone have ever encounter this issue ?Is there a way to do the same thing with another function ?Thank you in advance for your help
Hey! New to the Office 365 site, but worked through creating a Nintex Form, and saved + published. However when I go to the list and select New +, I’m redirected to a 404 error page and the Nintex form randomly does not work/show. I have re-”trusted” the add-on multiple times and it seems to not work after 24 hours. Any ideas?
I am building a workflow that uses a state machine and a half dozen flexi tasks. When one of the tasks is sent for actioning, I added reminders that work fine. But, I need to be able to either cancel or redirect after the task action exceeds some maximum limit.I tried on the escalation tab, complete the task after some time limit or to delegate. Neither does what I need. The complete path has the next flexi task called which is no good as the preconditions that the previous flexi task were to handle obviously did not get handled. The delegate task pass the same flexi task to the next flexi task recipient to answer questions that only the missed actioner could answer. Also, I see that there is an Outcome I can set that I thought would jump to another branch on my state machine but did nothing. Any help on this would be appreciated.
