How to dynamically update the list items in Nintex forms when a new list item is created in the sharepoint list.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you are talking about the Nintex Forms control named "List View" , currently you have not the chance to refresh it once it was rendered. You only will see the updated items, every time a new form is rendered.
Thanks for replying.
Ok let me put it more clear.
I created a list with 10 columns. Then when I click customize with Nintex form under list tab I can see all 10 columns appear in the Nintex form.After that, I did some changes to the form (mainly moving fields to fit my requirement), then saved and published the form.I could enter new values in the Nintex form and created a new list item.
Later I added 2 more columns to same list but when I open with Nintex forms or click customize with Nintex forms those 2 newly added columns doesnt appear in th form.
So I need to press a button as menitioned in this image to get the update of 2 new columns in the form.
By doing this I lost all layout changes like moving textboxes , label boxes to fit my UI requirements.
What you are going to want to do is after adding new columns to your backing list, simply drag n' drop the controls that you want to use to input data into the new columns from the "General" tab, then click on the new controls and use the "Connected To" field to connect them to their respective columns in the list. For example, if you added a new column in your list called "City" you could then open the Nintex Form, drag a textbox onto the form, click on the textbox, and in the "Connected To" configuration field, select the "City" column. Now when you publish the form and fill it out the data you enter into the City Text box will persist to your list.
As you add new columns they won't automatically appear on your form so as to not interfere with your current design. If you notice on the designer there is also a "List columns" tab, which Nintex does automatically connect a control to a list column, so that you could simply drag this onto the form and it would already be connected as well.
Thank you for your explanation below.
I have a supply request list in Nintex form and i'd like to have the request number to be automatically generated every time a user fills out a request. For example, if a user fill out a request, SharePoint list will generate that request as request #1. The next user fills out another request, SharePoint list will generate that request as request #2.
Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
