i am quite new to nintex and getting stuck at some points.
one of them is to update list values from a task form without completing the task.
1. create a list item
2. a workflow is triggered to run and creates some tasks
3. within the task some values connected to list items are changed
4. the task is saved, not submitted yet.
=> list item is not updated.
as soon as i submit the task the list item is updated.
is there any way to workaround it?
the need for this scenario is a task cintaining sub-tasks, which are documented in that task. in the list item we want to have an overview of the sub-tasks.
is that possible?
this task form behaviour is by design.
you'd need to maintains subtasks' statuses directly in main list. just when all then subtasks are done user should confirm workflow task. you may apply some validation rules in task form to ensure it.
