Pause Until Date in the Past

Jump to solution

We have a workflow that uses the Pause Until action + a date on the item form. Sometimes the date would be in the past. Is it normal for the workflow to stall in the Pause Until past date mode forever, or is there an expectation that it would go through the step without the pause?.. This is an inquiry about Nintex Workflow in SharePoint 2013. We are migrating from SharePoint 2010 to 2013, and it seems that this behavior only happens in the migrated SharePoint 2013 site.

Maybeit would be a good idea to put the Pause Until inside a Run-if date >= Today.....

Of course, I understand that that's what I can do to achieve the effect I need. I was just trying to inquire about the typical expected behavior of the Pause Until action.

if I recall correctly, for past dates it pauses for one cycle resp. until next timer job wake up (SP2013)

Thank you, Marian! I'll still need to test it (currently, server issues holding me back), but it seems like that's what is supposed to happen.
