Nintex Forms

Nintex Forms are easy to use and set up, however, we have found there are some things you can do to get the best performance from your forms.

Nintex Forms – good practise recommendations:

  • Use Labels instead of Rich Text controls to reduce form load time

  • Use Tabs instead of Panels in order to reduce number of controls displayed on form load

  • Create separate forms for each Content type to provide better maintainability and flexibility

  • All validations should be bound to fields and there should be no duplicates

  • Try not to use more than 8 lookup columns on a single form as doing so can significantly increase form load time

Extra attention should be applied when deleting or renaming list/content type columns if they are used on Nintex form. By default the form will still store the data as an XML structure, but values will not be bound to a specific SharePoint column:

Keeping old versions of items will increase form load time so set list item versioning history limit to a maximum of 5 or less.

Use the Nintex Control filter when possible to limit the number of lookup values displayed. Having a reference to a list with hundreds of items will increase form load time.
