The following is a list of good tutorials to get you started with Nintex Forms. The first article is how to create a Nintex form followed by several other getting started tutorials in no specific order.
Nintex forms allow you to modify the SharePoint data entry page on almost all the different types of SharePoint Apps (lists and libraries). You might want to modify the data entry page to improve the look, show or hide specific fields conditionally, pre-populate some field values, or to add more robust field validation.
Sometimes with Nintex forms you would like to set a default value for some fields. Some examples of default values include having a date field default to the current date, a dropdown field to a specific value or a people picker field default to the current user.
You can hide fields on a form based on the current person’s membership in a SharePoint group, or you can hide fields based on values in other fields in the form or the mode (new, edit, view) of the form.
Validation rules can be used to either make a field required (all the time or conditionally) or to check the value of the field to ensure it’s in either in the correct format or the entered value is valid (e.g. Ensure End Date is greater than or equal to Start Date).
This tutorial shows to add additional columns or fields to an already published Nintex Form.
All Nintex forms should either allow end users to enter a meaningful title or create a meaningful title for them. The Title field is important as it is the primary identifier for each form entry as displayed on the list views and is what is displayed in search as well.
Nintex forms can populate either a selected user in a people picker or the current users email, phone, department, title or other profile information.
There are many customization (Form-Display) options for Nintex forms including adding section headers, paging tabs, hiding the ribbon controls or changing what is displayed in the ribbon, or even adding some css to change the look of the form itself.
