I am using Nintex for SharePoint 2016 in order to create a set of forms all based on a 'master form' that carries standard look and feel and a number of common controls. I want to use the inheritance features so that a single site content type can be used multiple times to create child list content types. I expected that subsequent changes to the site content type would be inherited by all of the list content types which are children of the parent site content type. This is not working properly. There are two main symptoms:
There are clearly huge benefits from the inheritance feature which Nintex describes on its website, so I do not want to give up on it and have to use exported and imported form designs as the means of creating the many list content types.
Please can someone with experience shed some light on this problem.
Thanks for our response. I think I understand a bit more (by trial and error) relating to the disappearance of the site content type from the drop down list for creating a new list content type. I have been trying to create more than one list content type in a single list using the one site content type. This does not seem to be possible. I am able to to use that site content type to create a list content type in a second list. So unless I am misunderstanding this, I can only use a particular site content type once only in a list to create a list content type.
The requirement is to use a single list with many variants of the content type, using one Nintex workflow to manage the progress of the forms. It does therefore look like I will actually have to use export/import to create all the list content type variants.
