How can I show a value from a Data Lookup control as a label in Nintex Forms for Workflow Cloud?

A community member recently had a question on how they could select data from Office365, and after a selection is made, show an additional property as a read-only field.


I've made a video on two ways to solve this.

 

 

Hope this helps.

Hi @EuanGamble ,

 

What defines how the data is sorted in the data lookup control? I can't see anywhere to set the sorting in the control, and it isn't matching the sorting in my list.

 

Thanks

Hi @connormower,

 

At the moment it is sorted by List Item ID. We have sorting in the backlog but I don't have any dates for this as yet.

I'm trying to transfer all the form information into a SharePoint list.  Since the value output of duration is set to the interest rate, the information being pulled over will only show as the interest rate and won't show the original choice of duration length.  Any way to resolve this on the cloud form or workflow?

@EuanGamble   Is there any way to pull back more that one other column and have it display on the form?  For example in the data lookup we select an employee ID and then it pulls back their, name, address, city, state, phone, email, etc into labels on the form.
