I have a Nintex form in O365 that uses a lot of fields so not all of the fields are connected to an associated SharePoint column in the SharePoint list. The owner of the site wants to be able to search the site for a particular value and if the value is contained anywhere within the nintex form it is displayed within the search results.
Can this be done without mapping every field in the Nintex form to an associate column in the list.
All form's content, including data from fields not mapped to a list, are kept in a XML structure inside a hidden column named FormData. I have never checked that, but I suppose this column is also being indexed, so you should be able to search for the information kept there as well.
