Can you create a new document set with Nintex?

Jump to solution

We are debating whether to use Documents or Document Sets in an application. I'm wondering if anyone has created new document sets with workflows on SharePoint 2013 on premise? And what their experience was?

Maybe they even have a workflow example?

I have done this, but I had to write a custom web service to create/update the document set. It wasn't complex to do though so it may be an option for you.

Thanks, web services are problematic for us given the strange Linux Frontend to our SharePoint. We'll problem create a method in our C# Service to do this.

Do you have idea how to create multiple document set using loop action?
Ex: I will create docset: Name001, Name002, etc.

I want to create Doc Set with this combination string (ID-G-....System-Number)

Forms.png

If user choose qty more than 1, it will create doc set with ordered number (based on combination string before)

Data creation using another listData creation using another list

I was able to create more than 1 docset using another list, So I create list item in List then create doc set to original doclibrary

But I still wondering how to create multiple docset in one doclibrary only.

Is there any issue with create item action and update item action if I run them together?

Creating an Item and then Updating it is ok.
