I'm trying to write a workflow to copy an item from one list to another. Still can't really believe there isn't an action for this...
Anyway, I've got the workflow working for all of my fields, except a Managed Metadata field. I can retrieve the Label and Guid of the source field, but can't figure out how to set this value on the destination item.
Surely this can't be impossible?
Any help much appreciated
Solved! Go to Solution.
unfortunately not. Only reading and adding:
Thanks for the reply.
You may be interested to learn that it is possible, though it's not simple and it's not without caveats. The basic steps are outlined here:
(which is for Designer workflows, but the principle is the same for Nintex workflows)
I've now got this working, though I found that you need to be careful of a few things:
Wow, I wasn't even searching for a solution using SPD, thinking no one is no longer using it, but.. You got me! That's cool. Very useful! Thanks a lot!
Just thought I'd update this as I stumbled across this and it confused me.
You can update a Taxonomy field in Nintex Workflow by updating thefield with the string int the following format "Term|GUID".
This is the easier way to do it. One clarification, you set the hidden field (e.g. myTaxonomyField_0) to the Term|GUID (e.g. myTaxonomyValue|theGUIDforthatvalue). The Update List Item action works with it.
