Relevant to both Nintex Workflow 2013 and Nintex Workflow for 2010.
In this article, we show you how you can design a workflow which dynamically selects a set of approvers from another list.
Click on New item. Enter a Title and an Approver, click Save. Repeat, and add a second user.
Navigate to the library where the workflow will be created. In the Ribbon, select Workflow Settings and click on Create a Workflow in Nintex Workflow. Select the blank template and click Create.
The workflow will be configured to query the Approvers list and store all the users in it in the “Approvers” variable, then process it and store the result in the “ApproversString” variable.
Drag a Query List workflow action onto the design canvas. Double-click on the Query list action to open the configuration dialog.
Ensure that the Editor mode is set to Query builder.
Drag a Collection Operation workflow action on to the design canvas. Double-click on the Collection operation action to open the configuration dialog.
Drag the Request Approval workflow action on to the design canvas. Double-click on the Request Approval action to open the configuration dialog box.
Now you can continue and complete the workflow as required. When published, all users in the Approvers list at the time the workflow is executed will be selected as approvers in the workflow.
