Workflow action to convert Nintex Form to pdf
With the recently release Nintex Forms enterprise feature to print to PDF, it would be great to access this functionality via a Nintex Workflow.
As an example a Nintex Workflow could take a Nintex Form and generate a PDF file to be created in a library.
What is the status on this one? I've been waiting for it for over 3 years. Isn't some 700 votes enough to make it a priority?

I am a new Nintex customer (using mainly NWC) and during my development I just realized we can't ever view a completed form and this honestly shocks me. We keep our completed forms for many years for auditing and legal archive requirements and most of our processes will require this. We should not have to pay extra money for such a simple requirement. With almost 700 votes, why isn't this made more of a priority with the development team?
Any updates on this enhancement?
An update to a status of this is much needed it has been over 3 years now since it apparently was put on the Roadmap. Please Nintex.
Any update? This is truly a needed feature.
This is a critical feature to our business. Does anyone know what the status is?

This should be a very basic addition to the workflow actions as this is essential for any business.
Why would we have to go create a word template then use Doc generation?! What if my form is complex and rich with repeating sections and data that cannot be easily populated.
Please give this feature request high priority and push it forward to have it implemented ASAP.
Absolutely need this feature.
There have been many times I have needed this. Creating a document first to then PDF is not an option because all of the controls are not promoted to columns in the list that the workflow uses.
What is the status on this request?
What is the status on this? We will need to look at other options for doing forms with this feature is not available soon. We need the ability to turn our list items into records. Thanks.
This feature-gap is borderline embarrassing.
Forms are critical records. Forms are often list items.
SharePoint Records Center (if you are using it) doesn't allow List Items to become records.
So a form needs to become a document. Having no simple action for this is odd. Really odd.
Looking for an update on this enhancements, is it in the works yet?
Looking for an update on this functionality
The ability to convert complex forms at the end of a workflow into PDF and to archive them via web service into our external long term archive system is an important need. (Legal needs for long term archiving)
The manual needed step to generate the PDF blocks us from a complete digitalization of many processes.
An update of the nearly one year old Status "Planned" would be great!
This is a much needed feature in the workflow... Make this possible...
Please include this in your development. This will be very helpful in our record retention and audit sessions
This feature is so critical to our business. We need the ability to get a snapshot of the form so we can save it to our records system. We use Nintex Forms for a lot of our safety forms so it is very important for us to be able to print it to PDF vs leaving it as a list. We may be moving to another tool for creating forms if we can't automatically print to PDF.
