List Item Attachment for Task Forms
I like the idea of having Task Form per task ( Request Data , Request REview ..etc) and the assigned user can update the parent list as list columns are available in the task form except for Attachments.
Please add the ability to add/update attachments of the list item from tasks form.
Thanks for your suggestion.
I will update this idea if there are any updates to share.
need this now.
Attachment control in task forms has become a bottle-neck in recent project for me and below is why.
One of the strong feature of Nintex workflow is the integration of Nintex Forms and the control workflow ( business process ) has over forms when compared to InfoPath forms being in sync with workflow step. I like the fact that the end user can update the List Item from task form and also finish the task at the same time ( Love Flexi task !! ) but the fact that Nintex doesn't allow the add an attachment to the list item using tasks forms puts me in a tough spot while designing solutions as I can provide just one form per task and set the new standards for all the applications except if they have a task to upload the attachment then the user has to attach the document and later finish updating the task.
There are multiple solution over the internet ( UDAs , Copy Item to Library..etc) I personally think that these options are overkill. I would request Nintex product to fix this in the next release ( Christmas gift from Nintex )
Nintex fundamental tag line is workflow for everyone and this makes it questionable as this is quite basic and reasonable to expect and I hope Nintex fixes this soon.
other option incase the task form is not customized (form type being - default).
But if the taskform has to be a nintexform then I too think that the list item control is the only option
Option2:you can delete the existing list form web part (item preview) and drag and drop 'list item' control and configure it..that should show attachments and all other controls
I also looking for it now...
Any solution for that? I'm looking for the same.

Is it possible make the attachments made in the lists to be displayed in the approval forms (Nintex forms).
Currently Nintex forms doesn't have and option to show the list attachements in the corresponding task forms.

Today, the only way to make it is to use the list item control into the form.
We need to be able to customize the item displaying. We cannot make it with this kind of control.
