Can someone help me to fix the following issue that iam facing on Nintex Request Approval action ?
I created a new workflow where it generates checklist form and adds in share point list for the mangers approval. As part of this workflow i have added a Request approval action (as shown below) and customized the approval form using Edit Task Form --> Edit with Microsoft InfoPath 2010. it works fine on same sharepoint list where the workflow has been created.
But i get default form instead of my customized form when i tried to export the same workflow to other share point list and try to send checklist form for managers approval. Can someone guide em how can i fix this issue ? as i don't want to re-create the form each time i export the workflow. basically customization of this form takes 2 to 3 days to do. I tried to save the template and import on new SharePoint list workflow but nothing seems to work fine.
Thanks for the heads up on this issue..
Solved! Go to Solution.
This worked for some people:
Now the new form should show up when you use the flexitask.
But unfortunately we cannot import the info path form directly inside the workflow, Even i tried to open the form and publish to workflow but it doesn't allow me to change the publishing path.
Got the solution..
I think it might help someone to fix it as well. please see steps i have followed to fix this issue.
1. Get the backup of InfoPath form from the developed site
2. Import the InfoPath form (of Nintex workflow) to Live or other Site
You can enter the following values(for the above fields shown in image) based on your workflow and List
Name --> Give a relevant name to identify the form
NWAssociatedWebID --> This ID is global & common to SharePoint 2010 & 2013. Enter the value “1d5afadd-d013-4d88-b3b2-38b570da9b6f “
NintexWorkflowID --> Open the “Site Actions (from the top menu ribbon)--> Site Settings --> Workflows gallery (under Nintex workflow section) --> Right click on workflow (where you have added the current form) --> Properties --> select all the text under General tab (as shown in below ) --> copy and paste on note pad --> extract workflow id (value after “WorkflowId” and before “&Category”. See example below marked in pink)”
AssociatedListID --> from the steps of NintexWorkflowID, you can get the list id as marked (in pink colour) in below example
Done. This is how you can deploy the customized form for Nintex workflow actions.
I follow the steps given above, but i am getting error message as "no file" message when i click on edit task form with infopath. I am using SP 2013 and Nintex 2013. Can anyone provide me the solution to how to use customize infopath forms in Flexi Task or Request Approval Actions?
Info path forms should be configured properly. I have tried above steps 2-3 times on different sites i am able to make it without any issue. Could you please explain your issue in detailed, so that i can help you to fix this issue.
I've followed the instructions above and was able to access the updated form in my workflow, however when I try to publish it I get an error. Looking at the form in InfoPath, I can see that the Publish location is still set to the original server where I copied the form from (current form vs. imported form):
