Here we demonstrate how to create a cascading dropdown using Nintex Forms.
The video is shown on Nintex Forms 2010, but the same applies to Nintex Forms 2013.
In this written example, I demonstrate with a common State to Store relationship. You'll need to create three SharePoint lists, two of which contain the lookup information for the cascading drop down.
Create two custom lists. These custom lists form the basis for the lookups, which the main list will look the cascading information up from.
The information that will be used for the cascading dropdown items has been created.
Now that we have created the two lists required for the cascading drop down, we need to create the Nintex Form to display this information on a SharePoint list.
Your form should look similar to the image below.
We've also created a visual diagram on the concept of a cascading drop down. Hopefully this will help you visualize the concept

I have a managed metadata control in my nintex form. Depending on the value selected in the control I need to hide or make visible the panels below.
I referred this document and tried to implement the same but its not working.
Can anyone please help?
Thanks in Advance.
Nintex Forms currently does not support building formatting rules around the output of a Managed Metadata control. You can add this as a feature request on our Customer Forum, Customer Feedback for Nintex .
Can anyone please help me.
I have installed Nintex Forms (the 30-days trial). While trying to do the same as the video above i came across a 'small' problem. When i open the control settings got the list look up i cant find the Filtering settings as in the video. Why is that?
Do i get the filtering section if i buy Nintex Forms? or am i missing something.
Omar, are you trialing Nintex Forms for Office 365? Unfortunately the cascading drop down functionality is not available on Nintex forms for Office 365. If you want to trial it on Nintex Forms 2013, you can request a trial here http://www.nintex.com/en-US/Products/Pages/TrialDownload.aspx
Yes it is the trial for O365. When Will it Be available for the trial i have? And is there another way doing cascading in the trial i have?

Hi Omar, to test out cascading drop downs, you will need to download the Nintex Forms 2013 trial, and test it out on our SharePoint on-premise product. http://www.nintex.com/en-US/Products/Pages/TrialDownload.aspx
You can add more dropdowns. Simply add an extra list and a list lookup. The list lookup looks at the value of the second list for the filtering.
I understand that, except what I need it to do is filter based on the value of previous 2 drop downs. For example, lets say your first drop down has 2 items: Microsoft, and Apple. The second list has regions: America, Asia, and Europe. The third list has 25 different locations, some attached to each company at different regions. When the third list lookup filters based on the second list's value it gives your all the different locations for that region regardless of if they are attached to Microsoft or Apple. Does this give a better understanding of what I am trying to accomplish?
