It doesn't matter what's in the first box - if the second box is empty, the workflow won't publish...
I'm building a library workflow. Perhaps there is a better way? my goal is to send the modifier of a document a reminder after 3 days if they have not entered some metadata in a certain field or fields (ie the field is empty).
aren't you still able to select 'is empty' check instead of 'equals'?
what about to try following trick: let's create workflow variable and leave it's value empty. compare your field against that variable.
I don't have an 'is empty' option - perhaps it's a weakness of nintex for sharepoint online?
I tried to create an empty variable - but once again, it doesn't allow me to publish because you need something in the variable value field! I can't enter a space or anything as this would not match the blank field... doh!
looking to help 'is empty' is supported by O365 in run-if action. I'm not sure why aren't you provided with that option.
once again, were you able to put field reference for one value and variable for the other value?
something like this (Title is field name/reference, empty_wf_var is name of/reference to workflow variable):
if you are not able to set it up this way, I'm affraid I'm not able to help you.
Well - what you could do:
You can create a blank variable (at least in my on-premise Nintex Workflow 2010, I'm not sure about 365):
I don't know why Nintex don't just allow you to check if something is blank directly without having to go to all this trouble!
I think leaving the value as blank or space will not evaluate to empty.
You ll have to create a workflow variable and set workflow variable to blank.
Use the workflow variable to check any list item value equals to workflow variable.
Hope this helps.
