We need the following default values enabled for the following on task forms and start event forms in Nintex Automation Cloud ("NAC").
People Picker Fields - If Active Directory is enabled in tenant why wouldn't ID be an option to default value as or login username etc?
Other times we want to default a person in a custom "initiator" control vs system initiator data for when a user is opening a form it defaults to their name but left unlocked in case the person filling form out is not the same person the request is for.
We can't pass data through for updating purposes - we can only show people information in text, read-only on task forms. If we need to default it and leave it open for editing on task forms, we can't. We have to show it and give a box to "update details" and allow them to then fill out a blank canvas. It's extra steps just to update people and make it clear what the user is being asked to do.
Multi-Choice Fields - this is a major issue considering we have forms that request multiple information and I can pass the data from start event form to sharepoint but not back from sharepoint to a task form since default value doesn't exist for these fields. When displayed in text it looks horrible.
We also have a need to have users COPY a previous form submission through NAC, the option doesn't exist YTD. Because of this we have to use a data source to filter users previous requests stored in SharePoint list. They pick a request and then we have rules to "auto-populate" values into controls on start form so they don't have to fill out a 8 page form all over again. I can't auto-populate any of these addressed field types because default values do NOT exist on control.
Repeating Section - we can't default a repeating section, I think this should be allowed in configuration if the repeating section is coming from another nintex start event form or task form, I understand not being able to do it between SharePoint and NAC repeating sections but why not within the same environment? I was able to pass repeating sections to sharepoint and then manipulate the data string for a repeating section to show back up on a NAC task form but because default value didn't exist it was a failed and wasted attempt and could not be done.
Outcomes - can't do a default value for outcomes or create rules on outcomes. Very strange.
Upvoted this for the People Picker Fields. Should be able to set the default value of the people picker to the authenticated user.
