In Nintex Office 365 forms, making filled fields(controls) in disable mode in edit mode.

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?

Hi Umasuthan

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).

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 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?

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

Both,

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:

  1. Rule or approach used to hide or disable the control
  2. The behavior we expect when the control is hidden or disabled. The the issue, you describe.

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.
