I am creating an approval form where the approvers will need to be loaded from a list or set of lists based on 2 pieces of information, Department and Region.
The method I'm currently using is to have a workflow initialize the form after it's been saved, and fill in that information.
I've got a Switch case for each Department (21) and then 5 "If region = X" on the inside of each switch. Inside each If, is 7 set fields.
21 * 5 * 7 = 735 set field actions
I actually can't publish this workflow while it is this large. I get an error. (Server was unable to process request. ---> Failed to publish workflow: Error in the application.)
Is there a better way to perform this action in Nintex Workflow?
I tried Parallel actions as well as the switch function, but it ultimately leads to the same thing. An enormous unpublishable workflow.
Right now I'm thinking about creating 5 more workflows based on region, then using a switch to call the workflow that corresponds to the region and then have a workflow with only 147 set fields since I would have 21 cases (possible departments) each with 7 fields to set.
I feel like maybe I've approached this wrong, any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
what are you trying to set in so many branches and actions?
if you have stored you approvers in a list you could first use query list action and load needed approvers to a variable. then you use this variable in eg. flexi task to assign approve task to.
if you keep your approvers in several lists I would suggest to consolidate them to single list
