We are using Nintex 365 in a SharePoint online environment.
We have a SharePoint list that uses a Nintex form. We also have some engineering drawings in which we want to embed a link to the SharePoint list Nintex form. The link needs to open the Nintex form for the list item which is associated with a value in the engineering diagram. The value in the diagram will be equal to the Title column in the SharePoint list.
I know that I can use this link below to open a Nintex form:
But this link requires the item id, and that will not be available to us in the engineering diagram. Also, there will be no way to execute any code in the diagram, so we would not be able to look up the item by its title to get the item ID. There are literally thousands of diagrams, so we want to avoid having to manually look up the item ID for every valule in the diagram.
Is it possible to use a URL to open the Nintex form by using the title value as opposed to the item ID?
I don't know how to open the form, but to get close you could create a link to the list that is filtered to that item. If you go to your complete list and filter it on a single item and copy the URL, at the end will be some filter value information. If you change that for each drawing, you would have a link to take you to that specific item. They would still have to click on it to edit and open the form, but it would take them directly there.

Thank you for your reply Jeffrey.
We can certainly use a URL that would be a filter of the list based on that "tag" value. However, what we ideally want is a link directly to the Nintex form for the list item that contains that "tag" value from the diagram. For example, maybe something like:
If something like this is not possible, then we would have to fall back on the list filter url solution.
