Quick question. I am still new to Nintex.
Is there a way to publish a form or work flow without interfering with the users. Currently if I need to make a change to the form or a workflow I have to request that they save their work and stop creating or editing a form. Initially when w made the purchase we thought that they user could continue to work and save, then after they create a record or edit a record it would just load a the newly edited form.
My work flows are the same.
Am I missing something or is it just not possible?
I don't understand what you mean by "interfering with users".
Nintex have some governance features. You will find a lot of governance discussions and articles on the Community.
Your designers can modify forms or workflows and publishing them without effect on current forms/workflows.
For example current instances of workflows will always run with definitions on the moment for the instance creation, so a new version of your workflow will no affect current live instances.
Thank you. For what ever reason if i make a change to the form or to a workflow and the user is filling out a form it gives them an error stating they need to refresh since something changed. So for now if i need to make a change i ask everyone to save what they have and ask them to close the form until i save it.
I was hoping we could modify the form with out them getting an error.
Some of our forms have several fields. For the users to lose their work gets little a little frustrated.
If you are changing the underlying list then you may cause your users errors. Publishing a workflow, as stated, will have no effect on currently running workflows. Forms, however, will change to the newest instance as soon as they are published.
I tried this with a sample and noticed that when I modified the form and published, existing tasks forms didnt have this change while newly created task forms had the change .
Is there a way in Nintex forms / WFs where changes to the task form design can be seen in existing task forms as well ?
