Setting a condition for a multiple selection column

I have created a task list in Nintex 2013 that contains a column named "Add Permission Group". The type is choice and display choice is Checkboxes (allow multiple selections). I want the workflow to check if the ONLY item selected is READ to send it down one path, but if the selection is anything else besides/including READ to go down another path. This is what the form looks like:

I've tried the Workflow Action Set a Condition, but it sends the workflow down the READ path no matter what's selected.

This is what that part of the workflow looks like. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Setting a condition for a multiple selection column

Deborah,

The logic seems fine to me. What is the exact issue you are seeing?

The only possible question I might have is if the the Add Permission Group is returning the "read" in the format you need. It might be worth testing it by adding a send notification action and send the value to yourself.

Also what conditions you have set the workflow to run under?

Use "Contains" instead "Equals"

Re: Setting a condition for a multiple selection column

Fernando,

But wouldn't using "contains" do exactly opposite of what Deborah is asking? If I understand the question correctly, she only wants a different path, if the choice is ONLY "Read". if a combination of options is chosen along with READ, she wants the workflow to take a separate path.

Re: Setting a condition for a multiple selection column

Hi Deborah

I ran a test on my environment and found the following:

Test 1:  Selected "READ" only - value of Add Permission Group = READ

Test 2:  Selected "READ" and "RECON" only - value of Add Permission Group = READ, RECON

Test 3:  Selected "DIRMR" and "DPTCH" only - value of Add Permission Group = DIRMR, DPTCH

I think if you configure the set a condition action like this, it will work as you want:

it is checking that it equals READ but also that it does not contain a comma (indicating more than one selection).

This worked for the three tests (the correct branches were executed).

Thanks

Re: Setting a condition for a multiple selection column

Hi Deborah,

Your original Condition test would have worked - if you had the case correct. In your condition, you are looking at "read', but the value on your choice is "READ". I just tested this and it works fine when the case is correct.

Cheers,

Mark

Thanks Mark. I changed the condition to READ but it still sends it down the wrong path when READ is not selected.

I tried contains but it still goes down the READ path.
