In Nintex office 365 forms, After filling some fields(controls) I need to save that. Then when open it again in edit mode I need those fields in disable(uneditable) mode. Do Nintex has this feature? Or are there any possible ways to do this?
I was discussing a similar requirement with a client yesterday, I know you can add formatting rules for each column or named control, that either disables or hides if the boolean evaluation is true e.g.
In my case I want allow property editing only for certain users - obviously normal SharePoint permissions won' t cut it as users still need to edit the item (document).
Thank you Daniel.
I tried your approach. But when I add that rule for particular control its allowed only one time to edit it and after that it is getting disable mode. But I need it in edit mode for entire session. Are there any possible ways to do that?
Hi ,You can try the suggestion by Daniel. Else try my favorite technique
1)Add a column"CheckSave" of number type with initial value 0.Whenever you are saving the form write a workflow to update "CheckSave" to value 1
2)Edit the Nintex form and go to the control and "Add Rule" if CheckStage==1 && Control!="" and select disable checkbox.
You will be able to make the controls with values as disabled in the edit mode
Thank you Aditya.
I also understand that your approach is same as Daniel's one. But the problem is when I add that rule for particular control its allowed only one time to edit it and after that it is getting disable mode. But I need it in edit mode for entire session. Are there any possible ways to do that?
No,I am using this approach in my forms,I have set a column which I am using as a flag .Depending upon the stage I am changing the value of the flag column and depending upon the value I am making multiple control disabled in edit mode and when some values are entered I change the value of flag column and make disabled controls enabled
As of Friday, I am now about to work on a new requirement to disable key list control columns in a form depending on the logged in user whilst in edit mode. Hence, I am happy try out suggestions as mentioned in this post.
I guess we can break this down to:
I am looking 1) at the moment to as I want to disable either controls or the Save button depending on the role of the user. I store the user role in a separate list. incidentally, I have noticed I can trigger a workflow ( on Modified) by simply clicking on Document item properties and clicking the save button, regardless of whether check n or checkout the document.
