Nintex Forms: Associate label to managed metadata field

Hi,

I'm working on a form in Nintex Forms.

Somehow I can't associate a label to a managed metadata field...

I can only see controls who are not managed metadata fields in the dropdown 'Associated control' in the label options.

How can I associate a label with a managed metadata field?

Kinds regards,

Maxim

I'm able to connect a label to a Managed MetaData column:

I'm also able to do it with a control that is not connected to a column:

Did you make sure your control is named?

Hi Courtney!

Thanks for your quick response.

The control is named, the form is created on content type level. Because it needs to be used on more then one list.

However last night I did some more investigation and exported the form to an XML file, and I did notice something weird!

In the following section I noticed this:

<d2p1:FormControlProperties xmlns:d3p1="http://schemas.datacontract.org/2004/07/Nintex.Forms.SharePoint.FormControls._properties" i:type="d3p1:TaxonomyFormControlProperties">
<d2p1:IsNotSupportAssociatedControlForLabel>true</d2p1:IsNotSupportAssociatedControlForLabel>

I tried changing it to false and then importing the xml againg, but that also didn't work.

No idea why this is set on true in the first place...

Kind regards,

Maxim

Hmm, I wonder if you remove that tag entirely what would happen? Also, is there a reason to not just type out the label rather than associating it to a control?

Sorry totally missed your reply!

Yes I can't type it out because my form needs to be multi language.

If I remove the tag it also doesn't work...

But I managed to make it work through the XML file by changing the following XML at the label form control properties tag:


<d2p1:Text>Management process</d2p1:Text>
<d2p1:AssociatedControl>Managementprocess</d2p1:AssociatedControl>
<d2p1:AssociatedControlTextSet>Management process</d2p1:AssociatedControlTextSet>
</d2p1:FormControlProperties>

Kind regards,

Maxim
