Workflows Nintex

This article was helpful for 1 person. Is this article helpful for you?

I'd like to add a checklist item to a checklist for all cards on a board (each card has the same checklist). Can I use a Nintex ForEach action to accomplish this?

Do you have any detailed instructions on using the KanBo actions in Nintex? I am using Nintex Workflow 2013 Enterprise, Version: 3.1.7.0 (current). All workflows error with "Error in Add Checklist activity Sequence contains no elements".

Hi Bill I will check it. Regarding first question I have no idea so far. I will investigate.

Please send screenshot of action and variables configuration to support@kanbozone.com
