Im trying to break a long workflow into a few parts to help not reach the max process duration limit.
Have anyone done this? or similar?
Thanks for your question. I took the liberty to answer your question via the first Nintex Hangout this year. See the video below. It should be set to start at 31:21. Nintex Hangout live with Eric Harris (Jan 6th) - YouTube
Essentially, the workflows are not connected in some extent. If you have the sub workflow creating or updating items that are called back into the main workflow then the duration would be affected. If you are just kicking off a sub workflow that has no affect on the main workflow, then the duration is not related. Even if the workflows are working on the same item, the workflow duration themselves are not connected or related.
this depends on how you start the workflow:
Hope this helps!
