This may be a very silly question (hopefully) but how do I created a 2013 workflow? All the workflows I create are 2010 workflows, even those created under the 2013 Nintex Workflows on the Site Settings Dropdown.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The 2013 workflows created from the site settings drop down are site level workflows or reusable (added to a content type). You are probably looking for how to create list workflows.
To create a list workflow, go to any list or library, under the library tab in the ribbon to the far right is a button for workflow settings. Hit the drop down there and find Create a Workflow in Nintex Workflow. For instructions with screen shots, review How to Create a Leave Request Workflow
If you are unable to see the link to create nintex workflows from a list/library, then most likely the Nintex features were not activated for that site. See Installing Nintex Workflow 2013 and Nintex Forms 2013 on page 25 it starts a section "Activate features in SharePoint"
Hope this helps, let me know if you are still missing anything or cannot find what you need.
Thanks Andrew, I can find the Create Nintex Workflows option.
But the workflows it creates are 2010 not 2013
Same goes for site workflows
It claims that the workflow is 2013, but on closer inspection
It is in fact a 2010 workflow.
Robert, this is because Nintex in 2013 uses the SharePoint 2010 workflow engine. In SharePoint 2013 there is two workflow engines you can choose from. Details are outlined here. Further down the track we'll add support for the workflow manager engine but at this stage all workflows create with Nintex will show up as SharePoint 2010 workflows.
Hope that clarifies it
