Office 365 Check in items  -  URL and folder syntax examples please

Evaluating Nintex for Office 365

 

Wish to publish a major version on a document’s final check-in. Normally I’d use the 2013 Action which has a ‘Check in type’ pull down. The Nintex 365 action doesn’t yet have this feature. So instead I’m using the ‘Office 365 Check in items’ Action.

 

Having problems with the first two form entries:-

  • Destination Site URL
  • Document library

 

Tried numerous combintions of URLs and folder names – with and without slashes etc. but always get a Workflow History error along the lines of below:-

 

The list 'Shared Documents' does not exist in web site 'https://ericbagshaw.sharepoint.com/State%20Machine%20Approval'.

 

Any examples or suggestions will be most welcome…

 

Many thanks in advance 

Eric Bagshaw

Hello Eric,

Here is how I configured this action to work in my tenant:

The destination site was just the URL of the site in which the library is located in and I just typed in the Library name. You can enter either the URL manually or just copy the URL of the site in your browser. Both worked for me.

eg: https://yoursite.sharepoint.com/test/_layouts/15/start.aspx#/ 

Hope this helps!

Hi Eric,

 

This action will look for the document library by the name.

In SharePoint 2010, the default document library is named as "Shared Documents" but in SharePoint 2013, it is named as "Documents" (although the URL is still referring to ..../Shared%20Documents/....)

 

Based on the error message that you've provided, you might be connecting to Office 365 (SP2013) version, where the values should be:

Destination site URL: https://ericbagshaw.sharepoint.com/State%20Machine%20Approval

Document library: Documents

Hi Danny,

Spot on - was evaluating 365, unfamilar with the syntax and no examples in the 'help' files.

All working fine now.

All the best many thanks,

Eric

Hi Emily

All working fine now - was evaluating 365 and unfamilar with the syntax - may be worth adding a few examples in the 'help' files...

Impressed with Nintex's evolving 365 version - a couple of 'action gaps' but it's maturing nicely.

All the best many thanks,

Eric
