Update Multiple/dynamic fields in same list item from "Request Data"

Jump to solution

I have built a workflow that loops through the form gets the fields that are marked as "NOK" and then emails the other fields related to the previous out as a unique Tasks to the relevant owners using the request Data in Nintex workflow builder. I then need a reply from the each user which i want to put in a specific field relating to the Specific "NOK" of that certain Task.

Is there a way to select a variable as the update field in the "Set Field" or "Update Field" workflow parts?

Thanks

you mean to choose which field you are updating dynamically?

Yes. Rather than for example selecting "Field 1" to select a variable "varField-ID"

this is not possible with OOTB provided actions, you would need to use web service Lists.UpdateListItems Method (Lists)

Managed to make it work using a Webservice request calling the UpdateListItems SOAP Method. Ive managed to make it choose both the list item and item field dynamically from approvers data with the XML below.
