Workflow based on Repeating section

Question asked by activrob on May 3, 2016

I have a repeating section in my form. It contains two drop down lists. When the user selects and entry in the first drop down, it filters the list for the second drop down. The workflow needs to go to the person responsible for the combination. I can explain this by using the following table:

 

ItemLocationPerson
Item 1Area 1Person 1
Item 1Area 2Person 2
Item 1Area 3Person 2
Item 2Area 1

Person 3

 

So it's possible that the person it goes to could be the same for a lot of the combinations, or it could be possible that every combination of item and location could have a different person where the workflow needs to go. Also, because this is a repeating section, there could be one item selected, or 20 items selected and the workflow approval would need to go to each person.

 

I previously had a requirement where it was only based on Item and I had a parallel workflow for each item. But this isn't going to work since it's now based on item and location. I'm really struggling with how to lay this out using Nintex. I know I need to loop through the repeating section and query a list based on the two parameters, but I'm not sure how to go about doing this and then making it send the workflow to the right person after that's done.

 

Any help here is greatly appreciated.
