Capture Workflow Approval History on SharePoint Items

This post walks you through the steps I use to surface key Workflow History details onto a SharePoint list item. So, rather than having to navigate down into the Nintex Workflow History page to see who has Reviewed/Approved/Rejected/Completed an item and any associated comments, all of those details are more readily available on the Nintex form for the SharePoint item itself. This is also a good solution to make sure that these details are not lost with the workflow history when recommended database cleanup actions are performed—automatic, scheduled, or otherwise.

Can’t Delete SharePoint Online Site

This one’s a quick one…

We got a call from a client recently who was running into an error when attempting to delete a site from their SharePoint Online environment. The error message referenced “Sites that have subsites or certain apps can’t be deleted. Please try again after deleting all subsites and removing the apps” (see screenshot below).

Nintex xchange Conference Recap

Last month I was able to attend the 3rd annual Nintex xchange Customer and Partner conference in sunny San Diego, CA. The conference focuses on accelerating business with process automation and this year’s theme was all about ushering in a new era of Intelligent Process Automation. Over the course of three days, the conference included three stellar keynote presentations and about 40 breakout sessions. The conference also offered tons of opportunities to network with Nintex staff, other partners, and customers; and there was never a shortage of happy hours 😉

If you weren’t able to attend this year, have no fear! Continue reading “Nintex xchange Conference Recap”

Allow Attachments on NWC Web Form

I had a requirement from a client recently for an anonymous form that would allow attachments and then push all data captured (including attachments) into SharePoint Online. My colleagues tried several non-Nintex solutions to no avail, because there seems to be a limitation with allowing attachments on anonymous SharePoint forms.

Nintex Workflow Cloud (NWC) to the rescue! Continue reading “Allow Attachments on NWC Web Form”

Replace a Stubborn InfoPath Form with a Nintex Form

I am working with a client on converting all of their old InfoPath forms into Nintex Forms and recently ran into an odd issue. On the list that had an InfoPath form, I created a new Nintex form and published the Nintex form. I assumed that the Nintex form would take over and appear as the list item form after publish. However, this was not the case. Instead, the InfoPath form persisted.  Continue reading “Replace a Stubborn InfoPath Form with a Nintex Form”

Update the Styling of Disabled Input Fields on Nintex Forms

I was working on a Nintex Form for a client recently where there were several disabled fields. Actually, based on the type of request they were submitting, anywhere from 2 to 20ish fields could be disabled. The problem was that the default styling of disabled fields is not much different than enabled fields and our client wanted to make it more obvious which fields the user should be focusing on for certain scenarios. Allow me to explain… Continue reading “Update the Styling of Disabled Input Fields on Nintex Forms”
