Hi, I believe I found a potential bug using Chrome.I'm working with a classic form in SharePoint/Nintex 2019.I have a label with an associated control for a required field. I've found that it is adding the red asterisk to the bottom of the label (instead of the top right of the text where it usually is).I tried deleting and recreating the label, no luck.I then tried editing the source and found that there was a <br/> tag.I deleted the tag, saved, saved the form, and previewed it, but it was still there.I checked Edit source and deleted the line break, went immediately back in and noticed that it was still there. I had been using Chrome this entire time so I switched to IE11 and it saved my changes without automatically adding the line break.Went back into Chrome to test the form, looks good.Went back into the label with Chrome and it started adding the line break again. It seems to be an issue specifically with Chrome, but I'm unsure why.
I’ve been making a list on which users can sign up to a variety of events. On the nintex form they can choose which event they want to sign up for (it’s a choice column), and upon item creation a workflow starts that sends a confirmation email and stuff, and this workflow should also check if the user has already signed up for the same event, and if so, delete the entry again to prevent duplicate signups.The workflow should also check how many users in total have signed up for that event and check that against a participant limit. If users try to sign up while the limit was already reached, the workflow should instead put the entry on a backup list.I use a List Query to search the list for other entries by the user signing up (event is same, user is same, id is not same), and delete the new item if it finds any. I also use a List Query to count the number of entries in the list (event is same).This all seems to work quite well, the issue is if users enter multiple forms in quick succes
Hi there,I am struggling to create a site workflow that I think should be fairly simple.I’m creating a workflow that sends out a monthly email telling each employee (user) how many points they have at the end of the month from our employee reward system I have two lists (Users, Point History)The Users list stores Name, Email, and Employee ID The Point History list stores Total Points for each User and Employee ID I’m trying to make a workflow that Queries both lists, matches the Employee ID from both lists together in order to assign each user total points and then sends out that info in an email. Any tips or thoughts on how this can be achieved?
At first this seemed to me like a basic parse, but somehow I couldn’t crack it, any help would be greatly appreciated. I have 3 collection variables. Quantity - 34; 45; Description - myRecord1; myRecord2; Price - 599;899;I want to build a string like this using Nintex workflow.Final Text / Desired Output - #34, myRecord1, $599 \n\r #45, myRecord2, $899How do I achieve this using Nintex workflow?
Classic designer. Client would like the panel background color to change once a combination of values is set to provide a quick visual clue. I know how to set CSS in HTML via jQuery, just looking for a Nintex Form equivalent. Basically looking for the setting of 5 or so radio buttons (Nintex Choice form fields).Of course, if there is a non custom solution (like a form rule that can alter the CSS)< I am all for that as well.I have always used responsive, so have no idea where to start as far as where to store scripts - can I call a newer version of jQuery than what is baked in?Thanks for any guidance!
Hi all, Is it possible using Nintex workflows to set up a workflow to query for an item (separate from the current item) and copy that queried item into another library. It seems that this is possible using the “Copy Item” action, however this action cannot copy into subfolders of a library.To break it down I would like to:Query for item based on certain criteria Copy the item to a folder within another library using the queried value (ID, URL, something else?)Thanks in advance
I have a lookup column that I use on a Nintex Mobile form. The list of values is fairly long, and occassionally the field personnel cannot find the value they are looking for, I want to add an additional field - like an “Other” on a normal choice field. This is not an option on a lookup, so I thought I would add a checkbox - “enter value” - which would disable and hide the lookup, and make available a free form entry field. Both the lookup and the text field would be mapped to the same SharePoint column. Is this possible? I know I have done in the past, and it seemed like an issue, and I don’t recall ever figuring out the “trick” to make it work.Thanks in advance!
This is in SharePoint 2016.I have an employee time tracking system where the employee submits time for a given week to specific projects, each entry is its own item. Example below.Employee Project Week Time John Doe ABD 1 12 John Doe XYZ 1 16 John Doe LMNOP 1 4 I need to take the separate items, filtered to the specific week, keep them associated to that employee, add the total time entered, and update a single list item in a different list with the new information. Like below.Employee Total Week Time John Doe 32 I did look through this forum post, but I am uncertain that it will work since I need it to not be associated by ID, but by employee. I am not an expert in Nintex by any means either so the clearer the instructions the better.
I have a Nintex form on a list (SharePoint 2019).I have a lookup control that points to list “Standards” and save only the value back to a SLT field “Standard”I have a List View on the form that points to a list “Requirements” that has a column called Standard. I wish to pass the Standard value from the lookup control (either item property or control value as it does not change) as a filter to the Standard column for the list view to filter upon.Unfortunately all attempts have failed. When I look at the text for the column “Standard, it looks fine. The control however still has the ID value.Things I have tried:creating a calculated value parseLookup(Standard, true) pointing to the Standard named control (since a calculated value of the named control showed all the ID value jank) and using that as a filter, set to change on view, edit When I use the item property on New form, the entire list view displays as it should Once I choose a Standard and save, coming back in via Edit or Dis
When a site Nintex workflow gets executed via an anonymous link, on which identity the workflow will run? Limit the forms usage to specific number of users, using the form general settings tab. How many? Which forms can be created using Nintex for SharePoint form designer? In Nintex Responsive form designer, form style can be changed from the form which properties pane? After deploying Nintex workflow custom actions, which services needs to be restart? The Rule Editor in Responsive Form designer has which comparison operatives ?
Hi All I Just want to know about how to replicate or enable missing control on Nintex Forms or Workflows created on-prem now that were are moving to a cloud solution. Doing some migration using Sharegate is giving us some issues for this reason we decide to replicate forms and workflows but there are some missing controls than prevent us from complete this task.If is not there a solution, is there any workaround to make the proper changes on the Forms and Workflows after they were move from On-prem to Cloud? Thanks in advance for all help. Regards
I have a form where the user will input people which in turn will update a ‘Person/Group’ type column. This info will be used to alert the specified people by another workflow down the road. However, they should only be able to enter a total of 3 people.How can I set up a form rule to limit the amount of people the user can enter?
Hi, creating a survey form and we have 5 metrics (Strongle Agree, Agree, Nuetral, Disagree, Strongly Disagree). I was wondering if there is away to hide the text and only show empty radio buttons meanwhile I will add the Label to show those 5 metrics. This is to make the form look more efficient for our business owners. e.g.
In SP2016, I have a Nintex form. In the form, I want to do a validation. This is how my validation looks like,((lessThan(Calc Annual Energy Usage - No VFD, 200000)) && (equals(VFDIncluded, false)))|| ((lessThan(Calc Annual Energy Usage - VHD, 200000)) && (equals(VFDIncluded, True)))||((lessThan(AnnualEnergyUsage (watts), 200000)) && (equals(calc EnergyUsage, "watts/kw")))However, my first condition is failing. How do I make all validation work. As you can see, I am using 3 OR statements. I want the Submit button to show up when the value is greater than 200000 for any one of the control. Any help would be appreciated. Regards, Mayank Shyam

Hi All,We have a Nintex O365 New Responsive form which has got 6 pages and is text-heavy. All the pages except 2nd page has got controls and text whereas the second page has only labels with text. When using the Print to PDF option, the content from 3rd page is overlapping to 2nd page and the output is becoming unreadable. Any ideas to fix it?ThanksAravind
I have a Nintex form, that sets off workflows.This form and workflows worked perfectly before my SP was migrated from 2013 to 2019.Now, I am experiencing a couple types of errors I cannot solve:I have a workflow that errors, and doesn't show me any details, and doesn't show me the workflow tasks, so I cannot diagnose the fault. I.e. the error page wont link to anything to show me the highlighted tasks (green/amber/red). This error stops the workflow actions and as a result this workflow does not complete, plus the status ends up as “Error Occurred”. I have a few workflows that error, even though they complete the actions perfectly fine. These errors provide a link to the workflow tasks, and I can see every step is green. Plus the fields actually change and complete as per the workflow logic. However, the workflow errors, and the status ends up as “Error Occurred”. The error states “For more information, please read this article: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=323543&clcid=
Hello All,I had an issue with one of our SharePoint 2016 lists with a Nintex form that caused the form to not load properly due to some web part error (I can’t get the error to show back up). So I thought I could just start fresh and delete the web-part and re-add it. I went in and added a Web Part > Nintex Forms > List form, which asks for an Item ID. I’d obviously want the Item ID to load the current item selected and not a fixed ID to load. Any help would be appreciated as I’ve been stumped on this for hours! I’ve tried making a template of the list and creating a new one with that template with the same issue. I tried to delete the form entirely from the Nintex Form menu, but then I get a message saying I need Nintex to view this item. I was thinking I would like to just wipe the form.aspx settings somehow and try to re-publish the form? Just not sure how to go about that as a Site Collection Admin.
Hello,I have a Sharepoint 2016 application that is using Nintex workflows and forms. Recently I had to enable anonymous access in the web app. When anonymous is enabled at site collection level (list and libraries) the Nintex workflows that I have seem to run using the anonymous user permissions because I get: - 403 unauthorized on POST requests( if “Require Use Remote Interfaces permission” is checked) - 404 not found even in GET requests (if “Require Use Remote Interfaces permission” is unchecked)In my workflow web request which I did not get before.For every web request I have credentials set as the Service account which should have all the necessary permissions but for some reason it seems like Nintex bypasses that and runs under a least privileged user.Any idea why this is happening? I tried various solutions but I cannot seem to get Nintex to run with elevated privileges once Anonymous is enabled at site collection level and I am getting really desperate.Thanks!
Hello,We have a on-premises Sharepoint infrastructure with Nintex.In the nintex reports, displaying the workflows in progress, I have some workflows regarding deleted items. In this case, NWAdmin.exe with the options SyncTerminatedWorkflows and terminatedeleteditems solves the problem. But we have to indicate the site collection.I still have workflow in progress and when I click on it, it says “file not found”. I think that those are worklows related to delete sites. How can I cancel those workflows ? Because I can not indicate the site url, because it doesn’t exist anymore and I event don’t know its name.Thank you for your help,Pascal
