Just tried out the Cascading drop Down feature in O365, and I wanted to share the experience


First thing first, why will you need “Cascading Dropdown”? | Because it’s “User Friendly


Example: create a form where user can choose a value in a
“Country” field then the next field “City” will filter and display the cities
for the chosen country.




Nintex Form for O365


One SharePoint Main List


Two support SharePoint List


First create a support list named Country:


Then create a second support list named City | in the City
List create a lookup column “Country” with lookup to the “Country List”

My main list is named “CascadingDropDown” | it has three
columns | Title | Country (lookup to country list) | City (lookup to city list)

In the ”CascadingDropDown” list in the ribbon choose to
customize with Nintex Forms

This will send you to the Nintex Form Designer view | we
won’t make any big changes to the form just the “City” field control

Double click on the City
field control to bring up the control settings | we will filter the selection
based on the “Country” field control

Save and Publish your form | when adding a new item you can
now choose “Country” and “City” will filter the selections available

Great Works on bringing this cool feature to O365, thank you!
