Form Field not updating

Jump to solution

I need some ideas/pointers. I have a form that the list has a field labelled "Issue_type". When I created the form I used a choice control, called it "Issue_type" and connected it to the field list. When I fill the form out the selected choice does not seem to update in the list and therefore will not carry over to the workflow email that selects that list field for part of the body message to tell the user what option was selected. I would presume that what the user selected when filling the form out would send that option and update the list with one of the options.

Works for me. This is how I configured the choice control in my Nintex form:

For the text field inside my list I used the default configuration.

‌, when you state "default configuration", to make sure my perception is correct, the standard click on create column and just fill in the column name, leave the 'single line tex't radial selected and click OK.... Is this correct?

So I am wondering if I need to delete my List column and recreate another.

Once the submitter submits the form it is not populating the list field with the choice that was selected.

Yes, I just gave it a name and left all the other options unchanged. Trying to recreate the column seems like a good approach.

I removed the Issue_Type column in the list and recreated. Went back to form to make sure it is linked and still when the form is submitted it is not updating the list column with the choice that was chosen. If I set the default to compliment so that is selected on load of page then it will update with compliment but never with another value if another choice is selected.

**update

I created a new list with only the Issue_Type as a column. Created the new form with only the generic CHoice option and set that to connected Issue_Type, and that is still not updating the list with the option selected

do you have by any chance connected any other control (maybe on other panel/tab) to the same list field?

I do not have other controls linked. I can remove the lower "Compliment/Complaint" control (leaving panel) and the list will update. As soon as I add it back, the list will not update. Unless I am missing something (and sure I done something similiar), I should be able to have two panels with controls, connected to the same list column, One is hidden at all times based on credentials. If you are in MemberOfGroup then the control/panel of "Compliment/Complaint/Escalation" is shown and the control/panel of "Compliment/Complaint is hidden. And if you NOT in MemeberOfGroup then vice versa.

Pretty much the same as the first one except I removed the "Escalation" option.

you have said that you do not have two form controls connected to the same list field, but apparently you have!

both your choice controls are connected to the same Issue_Type list field.

so they overwrite each other.

whereas designer allows you to configure it, behavior at runtime is unpredictable resp not documented.
