Getting Rid of a Link in PDF generation of a list lookup column

Jump to solution

Hi,

  Newbie here! Please let me know if this isn't clear or so.

Context: I essentially have a Nintex form, where one field is a list lookup field, and I have a workflow that will take the Nintex form and render it to a .pdf. However, in the .pdf, the 'list lookup field' links to the custom list where the value was extracted from. Is there a way to disable it/prevent it from being clickable?

Hi @vities 

 

This is standard behaviour for out of the box lookups as far as I can tell, You might want to try using a parselookup() to convert the lookup into a text value.

Hi Jake,

   Thanks so much for replying! Unfortunately, this is a list lookup, and the user has to select from the category, and the PDF renders off the form, and not the final save copy...

 

Hmm, wondering if there's a way to create a pdf nintex form, and just stick labels...

 

Thanks!

Will be interesting to see what you come up with and if you want, reach out through your account manager and I am sure we can look together.
