Convert string to lower case in workflow

Jump to solution

Hi,

I need to convert a string from capital letters to lower case. It's easy in Forms, but how to do that in Workflows?

It's Nintex Workflow for SharePoint 2016.

Cheers

Use the Build String Action inside of your workflow. 

That will allow you to wrap text inside of the fn-ToLower() function. 

Example using Run Now:

I took a look at the available functions in Nintex Workflow 2016 - https://help.nintex.com/en-us/nintex2016/current/sp2016/Workflow/Reference/WFInlineFunctions.htm and fn-ToLower looks like the one you need.

One more tip if you work with older versions of Nintex: if your text can contain comma's, some of the inline functions may see it as a parameter separator and as such you need to place them within the text tags {TextStart} and {TextEnd}. For example:

fn-ToLower({TextStart}Apples, Oranges and Pears{TextEnd})
