I am having an issue with trying to update a multi-select choice field on my context item via the Update item action. I have created a custom task form, to which I have added a multi-select choice field, and I save the value of the choice field to a variable for update to a corresponding field on my list item, through the workflow Update item action. However, after the update, though I am seeing the updated field value(s) on the list view, I do not see them in my item form, (which is a Nintex form). Is there some sort of magic formula for updating multi-select choice field via workflow, so that the selected values are visible on the form? Incidentally, if I choose only one item in the multi-select values, the one selection is displayed in my form, this only fails with multiple selections.
Double check that your column set to accept multiple values, you can also try
to replace semicolon delimiter with a variable in your workflow that you get from your task form : semicolon + hash and then update your list field with that value
eg. select options "Value1" and "Value2" , the string value should be "Value1;#Value2"
Will these be bits of information you'll use often and a limited number of set colleagues? If so, you could create them as snippets instead. Save them as snippets so you can type "!cbill !csally !cmary" and you'll be done 🙂usps tracking
