We have a parent list workflow (let's call it P1) that starts a child site workflow (C2) using the Nintex Start Workflow action. "Wait for the workflow to complete before continuing" is not checked. We want P1 to continue once C2 is started.
However, P1 continues "In Progress" until C2 completes.
(I tried checking "Wait for the workflow to complete before continuing" just to see if the workflows behaved any differently. The only difference was that C2 took several minutes longer to execute. In both cases, P1 continued "In Progress" until C2 completed.)
Has anyone seen this behavior before? Do you have any suggestions on what might be happening, or how to correct?
We have recently converted to SharePoint 2013. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think this was an issue in SharePoint 2010.
