Question - Publish Form or Workflow without interfering with users

Hi. 

Quick question. I am still new to Nintex.

Is there a way to publish a form or work flow without interfering with the users. Currently if I need to make a change to the form or a workflow I have to request that they save their work and stop creating or editing a form. Initially when w made the purchase we thought that they user could continue to work and save, then after they create a record or edit a record it would just load a the newly edited form. 

My work flows are the same. 

Am I missing something or is it just not possible?

Thank you.

Hi:

I don't understand what you mean by "interfering with users".

Nintex have some governance features. You will find a lot of governance discussions and articles on the Community.

Your designers can modify forms or workflows and publishing them without effect on current forms/workflows.

For example current instances of workflows will always run with definitions on the moment for the instance creation, so a new version of your workflow will no affect current live instances.

Thank you. For what ever reason if i make a change to the form or to a workflow and the user is filling out a form it gives them an error stating they need to refresh since something changed. So for now if i need to make a change i ask everyone to save what they have and ask them to close the form until i save it. 

I was hoping we could modify the form with out  them getting an error.

Some of our forms have several fields. For the users to lose their work gets little a little frustrated.

   Hello,


If you are changing the underlying list then you may cause your users errors.  Publishing  a workflow, as stated, will have no effect on currently running workflows.   Forms, however, will change to the newest instance as soon as they are published.

Thanks

Mike

In testing I needed to change a header(label).

After I publish it I get this error when I save.

I can repeat it. 
Is it required I turn on "Item version history" in form settings?
Thank you,
