Is it possible to create a single form for several list? let's say I have four list:
List A, List B, List C, and List D.
List A = Title, Incident Number and Date
List B = Title, Date and Owner
List C = Title and Issue
List D = Title, Date, Instance, Owner and Contact #
Can I have a form that consist all of the above columns and I have several buttons which is Generate List A, Generate List B and so on. which will generate inputs for that specific list and create an item on that list.
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
if I understand what you are trying to do, I think you would need a fifth list which has all the columns required and from that list have the form that shows or hides columns depending on the list the items needs to be created in and then use workflow to create the item in the relevant list.
hope this helps
Hi Paul Crawford,
That's correct. Can you elaborate the part "have the form that shows or hides columns depending on the list the items needs to be created in" How would I do this one? I'm a bit new to nintex.
Hi Rogelio Tan
i would have a choice field on the fifth list with options for the 4 other lists.
then set up the form with panels holding the relevant fields for the lists.
Then set set up rules hiding the panels when the choice value changes.
you will need a rule for each panel. The rule should look like:
when setting up up the rules, make sure you are using the named control, not the item property for the choice field
appy the rules to the panels as necessary?
Paul's suggestion takes all the data you require in the 4 lists and distributes them to the child lists using workflow.
I only point this out for clarity should someone stumble across this thread searching for something similar.
A single form cannot allow users to create data in 4 different lists without the aid of a workflow.
