Start Nintex workflow to approve publishing a major version of an item

Jump to solution

We have a Nintex workflow which starts with the minor version, goes for multiple approvals and ends with publishing the major version by changing the approval status to "Approved"

But. Is it possible to start this Nintex workflow like the following way where we can start an OOTB approval workflow?@

The best advantage of using the above way is that user can just click on "Publish" and it will start an approval.

Or is there any OOTB way to kick off the workflow from item ribbon?

I also read the following explanation where we can achieve it through some custom coding but the client want to go for an easy way.

PS : Yeah, they laughed at me saying why Nintex can't provide this feature when even an OOTB 2010 approval workflow can do it.

Hi,

Thanks for your post. Technically as Christian's blog post shows, it's possible to implement a workaround, however looking back through our product suggestions and internal backlogs, the query hasn't come up that many times and hasn't made the top of the list for development.

My ask would be to add the request to our nintex.uservoice.com site for WF so others can chime in and we can get an accurate understanding of demand and hopefully do the work

This is something I have been looking for just now also. I am surprised that not more people have approached Nintex about this missing feature. To Alex Burton Nintex: when people are asking questions in forums they are voicing their requests. Should be uneccessary to ask them to also post this elsewhere. But if there is a chance of this getting even higher priority if I do, I will.
