Form based Task Approval

Hi, 

 

I've built an initial form in NWC for our field based staff to complete, its a series of labels with multi choice fields in a group which require a client approval upon completion. 

 

I am using a task approval form and would like the group from the initial form containing the labels and multi choice to be shown on the task approval so the client can approve/reject it. 

 

I cant see the group on any of the controls within listed in the start event form variables. 

 

Can anyone advise how I would get these to pull through please?

 

Apologies if this is a really dumb question - I'm a newbie when it comes to Nintex. 

 

Also once the client has approved / rejected it am I able to update the initial form with their response?

 

Thanks 

 

Stacey

Re: Form based Task Approval

@StaceyLee Multiple choice fields return a collection variable, which is not directly available in later forms. A quick workaround is turning the collection in a text variable using the create a string(https://help.nintex.com/en-US/nwc/Content/Designer/Actions/CreateaTextString.htm). If you don't like how it looks you could also modify that string(https://help.nintex.com/en-US/nwc/Content/Designer/Actions/ModifyString.htm).

Once a form has been submitted there is no way to update that form. You could potentially use something like SharePoint to track the value change.

Hi

 

Many thanks for your response, I will give that a go today. 

 

Is there a way to even include the approved/rejected field within the original form one the client has approved/rejected the task form?

 

Thanks

Re: Form based Task Approval

There is currently no way to update a completed Form, you could suggest this on the uservoice(https://nintex.uservoice.com/). Here is some other potential options:

  • You could use a SharePoint list to track as mentioned
  • Have a new form to display the detail
  • Use document generation to put all the detail in one document
