on Nintex Forms for Office 365, new responsive designer.
After my users submit a new form, whenever another user opens the form to view the details, the controls change. For instance, the form automatically calculates the Department by setting the Default value to userProfileLookup([Context].[Current user login name],"Department"), and the user selects and employee in a List Lookup control whose available selection options are determined by the user's Department. When another user opens the form, it re-calculates the Department and clears away the selected employee.
Yes, I have already added rules that mark the control as Read-only when in Edit mode and Display Mode rather than New mode. That did not prevent it from changing the values.
(oops, I forgot the word "not" in that previous sentence ... I added it now)
Solved! Go to Solution.
Update - I was able to achieve a work-around for being able to lock all updates, including the List Lookup. I added a dummy, read-only field to the form and set to as Required when Form Mode is not New. This causes the user to be unable to save the form using the Submit button. I also placed a label explaining that the user should use the Close button to prevent changes to the form.
I also save the EmployeeNumName selected value into another text field, and I display that value instead of the List Lookup. This works well, except for that pesky extra “01234#;” text, but that’s okay.
