Nintex Form - Pulling distinct items into a multiple selection drop down list or check box list??

Hi All,

 

I would like Pulling distinct items into a drop down list, and store the value into a "Single line of text" field in SharePoint List.

 

Let's say the data source list as below:

 

ID Name Department
1 John HR
2 Johnny IT
3 Peter IT
3 Mary MKT

And finally, the "Department" drop down list should only contains: "HR", "MKT", "IT" and the drop down list should allow multiple selection, alternatively, can I use check box list instead? Many thanks, Stehphen

@GP For the Nintex Form control, you would create your list as normal to populate the choices for the multi-select.

Then if you are using an external list, simply make a lookup control pointing to that list.

Once you have that control, you should be able to include that on your form as normal and wire it up. Everything should work as expected.

Form pulling from external list (as a lookup) and allowing multiple values to be selected at one time.
