Start Event: Nintex Scheduled start


This article will explain how to use the Nintex Scheduled start, start event, in Nintex Workflow Cloud. Use this start event when you want to automate the start of a workflow for things like nightly data processing tasks, posting daily or weekly reports, or for any process that requires the ability to run automatically either once or on a recurring basis.



  1. Click on the start event to open the configuration panel and select the "Scheduled start" option from the Nintex group of start events under the Start from property.

  2. Set the Start date and Timezone properties based on the date and time you want the workflow to start new instances within a selected time zone. Nintex Workflow Cloud will observe these settings from the moment you publish the workflow. Note, the Timezone property uses UTC time.
