Displaying a PDF in a "Edit start form" task list....

Jump to solution

Is it possible to display a PDF document in the nintex edit start form on from a task? My goal is to create a doc sign task. I have a list where I select the document that the employees need to read, the task,  once the document is selected is sent to everyone. The associates can view their tasks via the "My tasks" web part. The web part shows all tasks for said user. Once there is a task in their box they can click on the item opening the "edit start form" box where I have the option for them to select "I have read this doc." Now what I would really like is for  the document to display on the start form above where they can select that they have read the document in question. Is this possible to do?

 

...Now I have added a list lookup to the edit start form. The only problem with this option is that when I add two documents for them to read, they both show on the edit start form... so it might be confusing when the title is ' read memo 1" and both memo 1 and 2 are shown. The are really only signing off for memo 1 not 1 and 2.

 

I attached a picture showing the edit start form in hopes that it helps you understand where I want the document to display.

 

Thanks!

Hi Jacob,

There is a Page Viewer form control where you can configure the link to PDF document you may want to show. See if that helps.

You can configure the link in the Page Viewer using generic variables. So store the name of the PDF document in a variable in the workflow before assigning the task and then configure the page viewer URL using this variable or Item Property.

Everyone,

Kapil Joshi's answer is correct. I added a page viewer action and then linked it to the 'Item URL.' Now when I click on the task the PDF displays the document that the associates need to read.
