I'm creating a Initiation Start Form to update certain items in a list such as Assignee's or Status. Is there a way to make the choices for drop-downs to dynamically populate from the current item itself instead of the static choices you can enter?
Cascading drop downs and Nintex Forms for SharePoint
Hey Andrew thanks for responding. The issue I'm having is really geared towards the Initiation Form that is created before starting a workflow. I'm not sure if there is a way to connect the workflow variables to populate from a column off a list.
Did you happen to use List LookUp Control. I assume you are using Nintex Forms 2013 to build the initiation form. Also i assume, you are building List form and not the Workflow start form.
Thanks for responding. Unfortunately we don't have Nintex Forms but since InfoPath is being phased out we're switching to a new form system (http://spform.com). Although I'm not using that system in this example. I am using the Workflow Start Form and that is where I'm having the issue.
You can provide a drop down for a new item using the lookup field that will use list items from a list to populate. But it will not provide values to the drop down from one single list item.
Andrew, not sure if I understand what you're trying to say but from what I could gather in general is that values cannot be pulled from a single item or current existing column. That would be a nice feature to have because when I start a Workflow Start Form so a user can update a task status it would be nice to already have the current Status populated. I guess I'll have to continue working around it. Thanks guys!
