Today, I had a request on how to create links to documents in a Nintex Form (O365), but specifically in a Task form that was created from Nintex Workflow for Office 365. It’s an interesting question, since at this stage, we don’t have access to Nintex Workflow variables in the Nintex Form.
I figured out a workflow and you can see it in action in the video below. I’ll also talk about it under the video and the workflow is downloadable in the Downloads section below.
This process requires both Nintex Workflow and Forms for Office 365. The form in this example is just for the task action (Assign a Task). I think going through all the bits here is just doubling up as I’ve described what the steps are in the video.
- Create a field in your initial list to hold a semi-colon delimited list of urls
- Add a Rich Text control to your Task form and give it a CSS class like “cssHyperlinks”
- You should have a Single line of Text control on your task form, connected to your field from Requirement 1 above. If not, add a control and connect it. Also, add a CSS class to this control, and call it something like “cssUrlLinks”.
If you want to be smarter, your workflow that builds up the URLs can do something cool like DisplayName,URL;DisplayName;URL.
