I am new to Forms and wanted to know if l could possible to the following :
2 document libraries
Further information for employee
Have 4 fields :
On Document Library (Further information for employee) where the Nintex form sit's
FIELD 1 : Employee ID (want to enter in manually myself)
FIELD 2 : Auto Populates - Information from Employee information (Employees Name )
FIELD 3 : Auto Populates - Information from Employee information (Office Location )
FIELD 4 : Auto Populates - Information from Employee information (Managers Name )
Hope that makes sense
yes, it's possible, however complexity depends on how you'd like to use fields 2-4.
if it's sufficient for you they are just read-only fields, you can easily do it with calculated value control and formula based on lookup() function.
Read only would be fine how would l do the formula with that would l still use a list lookup, also for the first field how do l make that a type box that the users enters the employee ID him/herself
As when l use a list lookup l only get the below options :
How do l make it that a user enters the employee ID
I meant lookup() function, not lookup control
thanks for that, what about the first field l want that as a free text box but to look in a list to make sure the employee ID exist and if it doesn't to bring up an error
what you, however, could eg. do is to place a label or textbox control on the form with an alert/warning message and assign it a formatting rule that will show it if an ID doesn't exist and hide it otherwise.
rule's formula should check whether lookup() function as suggested above returns a valid user ID or not.
