Think of it just like querying SQL directly. It's the number of rows that SQL Server has to 'read' to determine if that row is to be returned. With an index, SQL Server knows which rows to get without having to read them. Without an index, SQL Server has to read every row in order to determine if it needs to retrieve it. Same in SharePoint. If SQL ...

You can achieve this via default column validation rather than nintex validation by doing the following : Go to list settings > Validation settings Add this formula =IF(Choice="No",FALSE,IF(Choice="",FALSE,TRUE)) Try to test now , It should be working properly [Update] For nintex at condition section at this choicefield == "" || choicefield == "...

The native "Hyperlink or Picture" column can have only one hyperlink. For multiple, you need to use "Multiple lines of text" column with "Enhanced rich text" option. Then in Nintex Build String action use html to construct multiple hyperlinks.

Modifying data directly in the SharePoint databases is unsupported. The proper way to fix this is to execute a Move-SPUser. The full cmdlet would be similar to the following. $user = Get-SPUser -Identity 'i:0#.w|domain\username' -Web http://webUrl Move-SPUser -Identity $user -NewAlias 'domain\fixedUsername' -IgnoreSid

Question: Does the mentioned list has versioning activated? if so check on the list settings who can see the drafts, looks like you have the "Only users who can approve items (and the author of the item)" option or something related to content approval. If I don't recall wrongly the workflow context executes using the user that launches the wf (in both ...

Would totally agree with this comment as we are using Nintex but just got stung by the increase in subscription costs, so were considering powerapps/flow as a replacement. But MS seem to be investing in both heavily, so I would revisit that in 6 months time as both products have matured a lot in the last 6-9 months.

Nintex is extremely expensive... They can be since there are few alternatives. I used flow for some workflows and it seemed to share a burden of many other apps of MS: Good idea but not really finished for productive application. There is nearly no depth to flow-workflows for more complex operations. On the other hand, there might be integration for other ...

You cannot do this with a Calculated Column. They can only access data from the same item. You create a SPD 2013 workflow and web service calls to read the other rows.

Publishing makes the wf available and connected to the list / library. If not published you can't run it. Versioning: Saving changes the lower version level (0.1, 0.2 …) Publishing changes the highest version level (1.0, 2.0...) Develop the wf in a test system or a test list where the users don't have permissions. If it's ready for use transfer it to the ...

Below should work. Are you using modern experience, You will not see update link like the following in modern site mode. So in modern sites, you cannot update the app as easily. The best way is to use the link in the bottom left corner of the site page to "Switch to classic mode". Then you can easily click the Update link and follow the steps from the ...

Just a quick reminder that both nintex forms and InfoPath were specifically designed to turn paper forms into online forms, while PowerApps was specifically designed to create mobile apps using a variety of data sources. These are related goals, but different. If you need a form with 50 fields all on the same form, nintex and InfoPath were specifically ...

Note in advance: Nintex Lazy Approval depends on the SharePoint Incoming E-Mail feature, so I'd vote to leave this question open and not to close it as off-topic because of Nintex. For incoming E-Mail, a subdomain of your existing E-Mail domain will be configured. If your maildomain is @mycompany.com, you could use @sharepoint.mycompany.com for incoming E-...

List/Library content types have different IDs than site content types. It could be that Nintex is expecting the list content type ID, not the general Folder CT ID. Create a folder in the destination library and look at its properties. In the query string you should see a ContentTypeId parameter. It will start with 0x0120, then have two zeroes, and then a ...

As the Ahmad suggested, the Hyperlink or Picture column cannot contains two links. But there is also an alternative instead of saving the complete HTML into column, and i would like to prefer them as you must not mix your Data with the UI elements while saving. Using the workflow add comma separated values, and then you can follow below approaches: For ...

I've done something similar in a SP list form. I created a custom front-end for the form to allow the user to create "lines" for more key/value information (in my case it was "relevant procedures" which included a Title and a URL) which I then stored in a multi-line text field as HTML. Later when displaying the data on the edit form, I grabbed the value of ...

So, I suggest you after canceled the workflow, please stop the Notifications timer job and “Expiration Policy” timer job , then restart them. You’d better remove your workflow after cancelled . ...

You can use the Pause until action to pause the workflow until the 'Next Review Date'. Just configure the action to use the column you created for the 'Review Date'. Then after the Pause you can use the Send Notification to send a email notification.

I think, We use the Remote event receivers for this. 1) Create a remote event receiver for the document library 2) Make sure that allow the app to make app-only calls to sharepoint is checked and the app has Tenant level control to write files 3). use the below code in the remove event receiver to copy the document string filePath = "/sites/dev/Copy/...

This issue occurs because of the source field is a multi-text rich text and the destination is a multi-text with plain So make sure that the type of text in column setting is the same in source and destination list

In this have a look at the type of the column Ongoing studies and due date , if it is Multiple lines of text and if you don't want any rich text then select the option Plain text under specify the type of the text to allow from column settings .
