Hi,

 

We have a requirement wherein we need to migrate nintex workflows from SharePoint 2010 OnPremise to Office 365.

  • Capture document set version
  • Copy to file share

  • Declare as record
  • Set field value
  • Undeclare as record
  • Action set
  • Calculate date
  • Collection operation
  • Retrieve data
  • Store data
  • Wait for check out status change
  • Complete workflow task
  • Delegate workflow task
  • Request approval
  • Request data
  • Request review

Thanks,

Ritesh

Cassy,

first, I moved the question to O365 forum. It's more appropriate. 

Second, I think my post about migration from on-premise to O365 may be useful: https://community.nintex.com/community/build-your-own/nintex-for-office-365/blog/2017/04/14/nintex-m...

If you think it's not sufficient, I can focus on it tomorrow and look one-by-one for counterparts.

Regards,

Tomasz
