Form field default value from list lookup

Jump to solution

This should be possible, but I suspect it would require javascript rather than just inline functions. On a Nintex Office 365 form, I need to set a default value for a person field from a list lookup if the value on another field meets certain conditions.  This is at the Form level, rather than within Workflow.


If Division_field = {X} and Location_field = {Y}  (first couple of fields filled out by user)

     then set default value of Manager2_field (at bottom of form) to be Manager2 field value from Manager2_List where Location = {Y}.


      default is blank.

Any suggestions or pointers would be very much appreciated.  I haven't done much coding with javascript in this environment so any javascript solutions would need to be verbose.

You can use the Lookup function within the form controls to populate values for fields. You can also use Javascript and the NWF$ object to fill in values of controls as well. How to query a SharePoint list from another list in Nintex Forms for O365.​ Is a good example.
