Welcome to an article on how to delete an item in SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 using Nintex Workflows. This article will display the action “Delete Item” so that all my developer friends don’t have to spend much time and effort while using this function in their projects.
Let’s see the implementation of this functionality.
- Create a list, Dev Testing.
- Click on the LIST tab on the top ribbon and click Nintex Workflows.
- You will see the following screen to create a new workflow.
- Click on “Create new workflow”.
- You will come to the design phase of the Nintex workflows.
- Add the action, Delete Item either by right clicking on the workflow or by dragging and dropping from the left toolbox.
- Now let’s configure it.
- When you double click on the action the following screen opens up.
Item: – Choose the item as in the current item or any item from other library.
- Now we have configured our workflow, let’s go and publish it to use it.
- Click Publish on the left corner of the ribbon of Nintex Designer.
You will see the following screen:
- Give your workflow a name.
- Choose your task list where it should store the tasks, it will be Workflow Tasks by default.
Choose your history list where it should store the history logs, it will be Workflow History by default.
- Start Options:-
You can either start your workflow manually.
Or you can start your workflow automatically when an item is created
Or you can start your workflow automatically when an item is modified.
- Click Publish
- Your workflow will get published.
Create an item in the list DevTesting as per the following screenshot:
An item gets created.
As per the functionality in our project, we can make it automated but here we will run it manually.
- Select the item.
- Under the “Items” tab click Workflows.
The following screen will be visible.
Click Delete Item Workflow.
It will bring you back to the list without that item you had selected.
