Update the Form Field

Hello Everyone, I'm very new to the Nintex workflow and still improving my skills within the same space. I need to build a very simple workflow but not able to execute it properly So hopefully someone will able to help me with my query.

I have a form which is submitted by the user and can't update the fields once its submitted so I need to run the workflow to update the contractor company from xyz (entered by the user) to ABC (should update the field after running the workflow).

Environment - Sharepoint Online

Using update XML 

Much appreciate your assistance.

regards

Re: Update the Form Field

I have a form which is submitted by the user and can't update the fields once its submitted

could you elaborate what would you like to update but can not?

is it an user who can not update the field(s)? or is it the form which do/can not update the field(s)? what are the reasons?

what's field's data type you'd like to update? why did you decide to use update XML action?

if update XML action is reasonable, provide screenshot of its configuration as well.

sample of the field content it should update would be helpful as well.

Re: Update the Form Field

Hi Marian,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I need to update the single field in the form which has been submitted by the end user(can't be edit now).

Column name - Contractor Company

current Item - Patel for....(...woods to update)

Update with - XYZ

This is my workflow

Configuration is as follow - 

Variable CC - manually enter the new item as a text before the start the workflow to update the existing contractor company field.

This is on the publish page - this workflow has to be run manually.

much appreciate your assistance.

regards

Re: Update the Form Field

I thought using XML might be the good option to update the field once submitted the form.

Please advise if there is better way to do it.

Re: Update the Form Field

Thanks Marian, I've tried the Update list item before without any success but will try again one by one.

Just 2 question now - do i need any other action to close the workflow apart from Update list item - see below

And this is my configuration which I'm currently trying.

Re: Update the Form Field

do i need any other action to close the workflow

no, red ellipse 'control' at the very end mean end of the workflow

And this is my configuration which I'm currently trying.

so did it work?

(document) 'Name' list field  should have been set to the value of 'Contractor company' list field and 'Contractor company' list field to the value of 'CC' workflow variable.
