Auto Increment - List View

Question asked by patrick.hallinan on Jan 22, 2018

Hello!  I have implemented an auto incrementing ID using Nintex WF on-prem and have a slight issue.  When an item is saved and the user is returned to the list view, the value does not display.  I assume this is due to the delay / time it takes for the workflow to run / finish.  If you refresh the page, the ID appears.

 

Question: Is there anyway to speed up the set value action / WF so it shows by the time the page is refreshed back to the list view?
