Can I check in a document via nintex form after editing the properties?

I have a review & approval workflow running on a document library with check in/out required - it's been fiddly to set up (due to field updates) but I have it running now on item created.

 

Problem - when an item has been 'modified' after the review stage and the document owner updates the properties using nintex form, the document is automatically checked out so the properties can be updated. Once the form is saved, the document remains checked out, and often the owner forgets to check it back in manually, and consequently the workflow does not start.

My question is, can check in be done in the form? Ideally the workflow would do this, but it doesn't run when the document is in check out mode. (Or rather it gets stuck on 'Starting' )

 

Any advice would be much appreciated!
