I am very new to Nintex (and SharePoint for that matter). I have a form that a user would fill out for a travel request. However there are 60+ fields the user can add data to, such as Airline, rental car, hotel stays and many many more...
My question is: Once the request has been made and an approver has requested the user to update some field for whatever reason, how can I use the workflow to detect that the user has actually made a change to any one of the fields of the form, not just editing the form and clicking save to update the modified date.
Not sure if this helps but you could have a conditional start workflow that starts if a previous value does not equal the current value. 60 conditions is a lot but it might be possible.
This is not checking specific fields as you suggested but only if anything changed.
the way i do it is by creating a disable rule that disable all the controls in that form if its not New (meaning: control will be editable if they the form is in New mode that function is in the common tab when trying to create a rule) if i want a user to edit the form i just assign a flexi task with the form in it that looks exactly like the submission form.
Note: this way will work if your form doesn't have attachments
hoping this helps
