Start workflow when form is opened

Jump to solution

Hi, I have recently begun working with workflows and for that I am using Nintex on Sharepoint 2013.

I've been having trouble with setting a people picker to default be the "Manager". I've been told that you could initialize the workflow when you open the form. That way you could find the manager for the user, and then populate the people picker with that value.

Can anyone help me with how to initialize workflow already when the form is opened?


Best regards

Hi Daniel,

Maybe this Designing a Nintex Workflow Start Form can help

Are you on Premise or O365?

So you can use this People Picker Extensions - Nintex Forms and you do not need a start form

hmm alright.. It might just be me thinking it is stupid, but why are there not just a userprofilelookup function on the people picker to set as a default value.

Thanks for the reply though
