Populating Nintex forms with existing data

Jump to solution

Hi Guys

 

I need your help with my Nintex Forms. I have a list in SharePoint that I want to use Nintex forms for. One thing I am struggling with is that I want to query existing data and populate my form with previous data and this was very easy in InfoPath but I am struggling in Nintex forms. Is it possible to set data based on a connection and how do you create connections in Nintex Forms?

 

Your help will be appreciated.

 

Regards

 

Bhuti

Hi,

unfortunately there isn't any Set Field Value rule in Nintex Forms, the only thing you can do is connect the field in the form to a WF Variable or to a current item field..

Otherwise (I don't know if this may be your case) you can have all this logics done in a workflow and it will update the list item form (you will find it in the FormData property)

Thank you for response Giacomo. There are some things that I need them to be populated on the client side based on some selection. It's a pity it's not available in Nintex Forms. This is my most used feature in InfoPath.


What I don't like about doing it in the workflow is that, it is basically an after effect. I will focus on that then.

There is the ability to query list data using List Lookups.

And if you have Enterprise forms - Web Request and Data Access controls (db).      Just for good measure, you could do custom js as well.

-Sorry for so many replies, but the list of ever growing possibilities...
