Update multiple fields of a SharePoint list from another list using Nintex workflow

Jump to solution

I have 2 lists - List A and List B. List B is a mirror copy of List A. So currently both of them have exactly same content(300 items) and they have 40 columns.

What I want is that if someone edits an item in List A(multiple fields, say 20), then that item should be updated in list B(with all the fields) using Nintex. I know I can use 'Update Item' action of Nintex but that would require me to configure logic for all the 40 fields and that would be tedious. Is there any other shorter way to update all fields of List B when an item is updated in List A?

afaik, there is no such function like copy/update whole list item.

neither sharepoint's APIs (web service, REST, CSOM) provide such an option...

Yes you can't update whole list item, instead you write a workflow in List A (to copy item to List B) like below.

1. Set workflow settings to allow workflow when items in 'List A' are modified/updated.

2. Find similar Item in 'List B' with some unique value and 'Delete' item from List B.

3. And 'Copy' current item from 'List A' to 'List B'.

So that you no need to configure all 40 items using 'Update/Create' item action.
