I've created and published a Nintex form on SharePoint Online but when I open to view the items on the associated list or create a new item on that list, the SharePoint versions of the form come up instead. Only in edit mode do I see the customized Nintex form that I've created. I know there's a PowerShell script that can fix this in SharePoint on premises and I have found that to work quite nicely, but, does this script need to be adjusted for SharePoint Online? I've noticed that there's quite a difference in the URL's for each of the 3 forms (originally known as "NewForm.aspx", "EditForm.aspx", and "DispForm.aspx") on SharePoint/Nintex Online. Has anyone used this script on SharePoint Online?
Please let me know and thanks in advance!
usually no script should be needed to display a Nintex Forms on a list. Do you have multiple content types on that list? Maybe the list is showing an item with a different content type than your form is attached to.
Can you describe the setup of your list? Is it inheriting a site content type? Is it created by some kind of template? Did you manipulate it somehow with PowerShell?
The list doesn't use a special content type (the "Item" content type is the only one in use) and it was created by exporting Access database tables into SharePoint. I would like to replace the Access front end with SharePoint using Nintex forms. And, I haven't used PowerShell to manipulate the list at all. I'm hoping that using Access as a source of the list isn't the problem as I have other databases to convert... Please let me know if you need any other information.
I have no experience in using Nintex Forms on lists created by exporting from Access.
As noone else replied so far I suggest you reach out to Nintex support and see if this is a supported scenario and what you can do to show the form.
I believe I've found the problem. I should have thought to check this first but I didn't. About a month ago, I tried using PowerApps on this list but found it didn't suit my purpose. So, when I started customizing the Nintex form, I made the assumption that the Nintex forms would simply become the default for each situation (new, edit, and view). However, only the "edit" form would appear. I have since then changed the "Form Settings" option, as follows and now my Nintex forms are appearing as expected.
Hope this helps someone else out there!
