Conditionally start multiple workflows

Jump to solution

I have a sharepoint list and created a few individual workflows that start conditionally if I change a value of 3 checkbox fields.

So if I edit an item and change the value of one checkbox field the Nintex Workflow gets started as intended.

However when I edit an item and change more than one checkbox only one workflow gets startet - is this intentional? How can i solve this problem?

Thanks for your help

Hi, Nintex places an Event Receiver an this ContentType or List. I think there will be one Event Receiver and the first condition that matches "wins".

I would suggest a "master-workflow" which controls the start of the sub-workflows.

F.E. - Master Workflow starts whenever an item is updated. The workflow checks via condition, if a sub-workflow has to be started. At the "Start Workflow"-Action you should check "Do not start this workflow, when a instance is already running".

That should do the work.

Sounds legit, can you tell me how I can check in the master workflow if a specific field has been changed with the condition action?

In the workflow settings i can compare a field to its previous value but in a condition action there doesnt to be such a option.

No you wont be able to check the previous value  during the workflow process without setting up another list to track that for you.

Just some additional information, I've used a switch before within a "primary" workflow that starts when an item is created or modified that will use a switch or condition that subsequently starts other workflows. That way I can control which process or sub workflow that needs to run with conditions.
