What is the difference between these 2 forms:
1. Within a Nintex Workflow under Workflow Settings, Edit Start Form > Edit with Nintex Forms
2. Within a List, Nintex Forms > Customize the Item Form
When I select New for the list, the form created in #2 above is displayed. How/when is the form in #1 displayed?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can see the nintex workflow start form when you run the workflow from the item menu or when you start the workflow manually. When you create a new item you will see only the list form.
You would typically edit the start form of the workflow for manually starting workflows that require input data before they can start (this is when you create a variable in workflow and choose to "show on start form").
Generally the use case is this:
Nintex Workflow Start Form: Used for Site level workflows. Provides an interface (form) from which to start a site workflow. The form "lives" with the workflow.
List Item Form: Used to represent an item in a list as an interface. Lives in the list on top of the item.
I am newbie to Nintex, would like to know if the Nintex Start Form variables can be saved to a particular list in Sharepoint. How can we achieve this. Please help.
Hi yes but you would need to handle this in your workflow. i.e. use your starting variables in an "Update item" or "Set field value" action
Thanks Cassy for the help, but any example how to do that would be greatly appreciated, because I am still puzzled how to do that.
To be precise on my question - I have 10 startup variables declared on the Nintex Start Form, and I need them to be stored to a List. As you have suggested, I have tried "Update Multiple Items" instead of "Update Item" since I have multiple variables. Under the filter tab its showing as "Select all list items" and "Select items only when the following is true:"; my confusion is which to select and how to add multiple fields and save the workflow data.
Thanks for the help in advance.
OK how do you know which item you want to update? Do you have the ID or something unique to identify it with? Once I know that I can show you how to do it.
Screenshot of your starting form and the destination you want to update would help.
