More Submit Options/Rules
While all of these can be done via CSOM on Submit, it'd take a savvy user to make that happen. To me the beauty of Nintex is how simple and powerful it is. I'd like to see more submit options/rules in Nintex Forms to keep process owners feeling empowered.
Hi Erik. Thanks for the feedback. The truth is that this is something we are unlikely to do inside Nintex Forms itself. We are keenly aware of the importance of keeping business logic (handled by Nintex Workflow) separate from presentation logic (handled by Nintex Forms). We believe that using Nintex Workflow to handle the orchestration work is far more robust and far easier to work with (particularly if the logic starts getting complex) and to maintain. Frankly, this was where maintenance of InfoPath forms became quite difficult for many customers.
That said, your point is well taken and we are exploring ways to make Nintex Forms and Nintex Workflow more tightly integrated so that it would be far more straightforward to achieve the results that you are looking for while allowing us to continue to work within the strengths of both products. I hope you’ll be happy with the results as we move into this direction.
In the meantime, I’d suggest you look at how using Nintex Forms as a Start Form in Nintex Workflow, or having a Nintex Workflow trigger from the creation of a new item on a list, would suit your purposes.
