stop workflow if document is checked out

Jump to solution

Hi, I'm new to Nintex. I'm translating a SharePoint Designer workflow for a library to Nintex for O365.

The first step is already the biggest problem:

How can I check if a document is checked out? The workflow should only run if the document is checked in and stop if the document is checked out

I've seen some post about querying the library, but that interface looks totally different to what I'm seeing here and I can't get it to work.

The Checked Out To field cannot be compared to anything and will always result in TRUE. 

Why is this so hard?

Yeah, that was the thread I mentioned above. I don't see that user interface and it's not working for me.

In the meantime I have found a solution:  use a workflow variable, write the Checked_Out_To display name into the variable, then check if the variable is blank. If it is not blank, the document is checked out.
