Pause for Duration Action Upgrade


This How To article describes the information needed to upgrade a Nintex for Office 365 workflow to Nintex Workflow Cloud that contains an Pause for Duration action in your workflow design. This action will require your review to make sure it's set based on your requirements.


After Upgrade

  • The upgrade process will calculate the total number of units in minutes. For example, 1 day equals 1440 minutes. If you configured combined properties of 1 day, 2 hours, and 3 minutes, that will be upgraded as 1563 minutes.
  • The Business hours only setting is no longer supported inside the action.



  • You can only enter one number value with one selected unit.
  • The maximum amount of pause time allowed is up to one year.
  • You can use variables to dynamically set the pause value.





Double check the upgraded values. You can enter a numerical value then select the desired unit in minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or year based on your requirements.
