Add Single Line of Text to List Lookup Functionality
Here's the scenario:
List Lookup: Project.
Now, based on that project, I want to set fields to display: Project Manager; Location; Budget.
And, more importantly, I need this to work on Nintex Mobile, and offline.
Right now, I address this by using a concatenated string of all data that my List Lookup connects to, and then I RegEx out each piece.
It works, but, it's stupid, and also it looks gross. In my list dropdown I see things like "Project: 123456; Manager: Rhia; Budget: $5,000; Location: Vancouver;" -- not a good UX.
I know I can populate a dropdown with each of these items, but I don't want my users to have to go through and select it from the dropdown -- that's also bad UX. All the options in List Lookup are multi-select.
If lookup() worked on mobile, this would not be required but... since it isn't......
Thanks for your suggestion Rhia.
With the new rules engine in Universal Forms, we are certainly thinking about how we could achieve this functionality.
I will update this idea when we have begun development on the List Lookup control and is integrated with the rules engine in Universal Forms.

The lack of key support for functionality in Nintex Mobile like this one, is holding back the Nintex technology reach to organisations with large portion of mobile workforce.
