Start workflow first day of the month

Hello.  Nintex Workflow Cloud workflows can be started on a recurring schedule basis by configuring the start event control with the appropriate settings, such as every Monday.  However, we don't see an option to run the workflow every month on the first business day of the month.  Is that even possible? Thanks.

Re: Start workflow first day of the month

Hi @baltner

 

I am afraid, this is not possible in standard.

 

You could try a workarround e.g with the NWC Tools or with the xtension WorkingDays.

Re: Start workflow first day of the month

This may not be exactly the solution you are asking for, but maybe it starts you down the right path. You can configure a scheduled workflow to run every day and check to see if the day is the 1st in the month. You could wrap the actions that need to run in a Run If True action and only run them when the day is the 1st. The workflow steps outline to do this is:

 

  1. Create a Scheduled Start workflow to run daily.
  2. Use a "Format date to string" action to format the current date as DD-MM-YYYY.
  3. Configure a "Modify string" action with the "Extract substring from start of string" operation to get the first 2 characters.
  4. Configure a "Run if true" action with a condition to see if the day string variable equals 01.
    • Place the actions inside that you want to run on the 1st day of the month.
