What’s New: Enhanced Forms for Nintex Workflow Cloud

Nintex workflow cloud just keeps getting better. With this latest release, you can really create some powerful forms to enhance your end user experience when they submit data via forms built in Nintex Workflow Cloud.

We now have more control over our textbox, single and multiple choice controls. Let’s get into what these updates look like. First, we are going to cover two controls, the single and multiple choice because the concepts are the same for both.

Single Choice

For this example, we will use the single choice control.

After you drag-and-drop a single choice field on to your designer you have new configuration options. You can now set the control as read-only, and set a custom name for your variable or have it auto-generated in the configuration panel.

This will be helpful because you might only want certain fields to be filled out, but if a user selects a certain answer you can unlock the control with a rule.

I have the control set to read-only, and when a user selects Yes, they will need to select an option from the single choice control. I create two rules. First to turn read-only to “NO” and second to make the field required. I am also renaming my choice field to a variable to something that makes more sense. Before this latest release your title was your workflow variable making for very long names to use within your workflow.

*Auto-generate variables or rename them to fit your organization naming convention.

Another great enhancement in the forms is within your single line (short field) textbox. You can now specify an input that you are looking for called a Text Mask. An example might be a phone number, credit card, or maybe you just want an input of number or letters. This will help ensure quality data being entered into your form.
