I am looking for a way to leverage the ID field in a SharePoint list to come up with a customized ID field relevant to the user.
If the item ID is 29, the user wants to see "2016/00029/US".
My thought was, I could create a Nintex workflow to execute when the item is first created, and use the fn-PadLeft inline function to construct the '00029' string and combine it with the other text snippets.
Unfortunately, I'm not able to use the PadLeft function in the "Set Workflow Variable" or "Update List Item" functions - see below for why.
I am completely confused as to why this field won't let me use an inline function, or if it does, what I'm doing wrong because it seemed fairly straightforward with the existing formula.
Any thoughts / suggestions?
Solved! Go to Solution.
After more testing we finally discovered that the order that Nintex is autocorrecting to works even though it doesnt match much of the documentation available. If you are seeing this issue just try it.
