Column that triggers another column that must be completed

Is there a way to set up a column that must be completed if another column is updated in a certain way.

I.e. if you have a column "Is it approved?" which is set to "No" then the "Reason" column must be populated before saving the content type form?

Hi ‌,

I assume you are talking about Nintex Forms. Yes, this is possible. You have to use rules.

The community has a great page for you. Please check this page for more information about Nintex Forms.

Cheers,

Rick

Re: Column that triggers another column that must be completed

The devil is in the details, so a little more input from me:

  1. With rules you can make sure that when someone saves the form, an error message appears that the reason must be filled in.
  2. If you want to alert the user before saving, you need to do some JavaScripting.

Scenario 1 also works in Nintex Mobile. Scenario 2 is more complex but gives you more options. This community site is full of useful information about this topic. The homepage of the community has a search box you can use for this.
