Linking to the Nintex New Form

Hi, 

I have created a responsive Nintex Form and now would like to link to this from a page in SharePoint. I tried copying the link from when I clicked on +New for the list but this works once and then stops working.  

Where can I get a link that always works?

Re: Linking to the Nintex New Form

provided you only have one content type on your list you should be able to get it simply by using the following:

https://yourdomain/sites/yoursite/lists/yourlistname/newform.aspx

the bold  portions being the bits you'll need to substitute with your domain, site and list.

This will work for both O365 and on prem.

If you have multiple content types on a list and different forms for them then you'll need to include the query string ctype parameter.

If you want to redirect when the form is closed you will want to include the source parameter in your query string. However you can also control this in your button settings.

Re: Linking to the Nintex New Form

Could you share an example of what the New form URL would be for an O365 list with multiple content types with unique custom nintex forms? I appreciate how to obtain the ctype ID from the default new URL of the list content type, but would appreciate your input on the overall format.

Re: Linking to the Nintex New Form

This works for me

https://domain/sites/sitename/Lists/listname/newform.aspx?ctype=0x0100B27D341B5956CE46AC0FB85C448

The ctype value in my url is an indicative value obviously. You can obtain your content type ID by going to the content type settings within List settings.

Re: Linking to the Nintex New Form

Thanks for the quick response.

Are you achieving the customised CT link in O365?  reviewing the URLs of the various CT's with individual Nintex forms, they include the app sub domain in the URL. When I attempt the following - the new form for the default list 'item' displays, and not the desired CT newform;


https://domain.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename/subsitename/Lists/listname/newform.aspx?ctype=0x0100935...

Re: Linking to the Nintex New Form

You're right. It does appear that in O365 with multiple content types you need to invoke the full URL including the app sub domain to be able to give a direct link to the new form.

If you wanted to give a link direct to an existing item you'd want to copy the link from form in Edit mode rather than New mode. The main difference here is a query string parameter called mode (1 = edit mode, 0 = new mode) and there's also an ID parameter in there, which is the ID of the item in the list. Not as clean as on prem but then there are the constraints of the app model to deal with.

Re: Linking to the Nintex New Form

Instead of ?ctype= try ?ContentTypeID= . I just ran into a similar issue. When I use ctype it pulls up an old version of the form (be it Nintex or stock SP form) but ContentTypeID seems to work correctly every time.
