for that I temporary created Flexi Task with the names of doers for choices and than save choice in workflow variable.
However, the minus is:
(1) In Flexi Task with branches named (by doers), I should copy and repeat the same actions in every branch;
(2) If I set option "remove branches" in Flexi Task, in this case I cannot get the Doer ID (to send him message for example) because I only have text variable with doer name (text).
That should be easy way to do it. However, I am new in Nintex. Thanks in advice!
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I'm right with your needs, you could do it by editing the Start Form of your Workflow.
You will need three things :
And that's it !
Now you will have a people variable that you would be able to use as a mail recipient
Thanks you for answer!
I understand clearly step 1 and 2
However, I don't understand clearly what you mean "People" form control on "start form" in advanced options? Is this advanced option only available in Nintex Forms or in ordinary SP forms?
I need a choice of Doers in the task assigned to BOSS,
So is only one way?: create a task for Boss, which sends him link to the detail item’s form of list. BOSS goes to this form, click «edit Item» and select Person from SP Group. Then I wait for choice and assign WF variable Doer the selected value and send message to variable Doer?
Or, there is some other varians to make this choice for task assigned to BOSS?
I had thought the "Doer" selection could be made on the workflow start form.
No matter, you use a task, which has a form that could be edit via Nintex Forms, if you use a Flexi Task.
In the Form Designer, add a "Person" Control" and connect it with the "Doer" workflow variable.

Thank you a lot!
Now I have not only NW, but
NF 2013 also.
My question is what type of Action you recommend to choose Doer (Flexi task, Request Data Action or Assign to-do task)?
Doer field should be without default value and choice should be required.
