Design Question - Get the Version of item which was approved by the workflow.

Hello All,


This is more of a design question to ascertain if Nintex has this capability or have I overlooked any specific feature.


Consider List 1 (version history is enabled)

    1) User A makes changes sends it for approval to User B. User B approves. Workflow Ends

    2) User A again makes changes sends it for approval to User B(or User C does not matter), this User approves and workflow ends.

When I look at the history how do I know which version of the list item has B first approved? As for Audit perspective we should be able to know when User B approved the first time what were the contents of the listitem.


I believe is there a simple way in Nintex to achieve this? I do know that adding to much version also slows down the system, but my question is more on the design aspect rather than performance. I am sure I don't want to explicitly log all the details of the list item into another list when any user approves.. somehow breaks the purpose of versioning.


Am i missing something on a Tuesday morning?

One of my Client has chosen Nintex over other Workflow tools so want to be sure if this one feature could be a challenge?
