Hi, I am Nintex newby and already designed some workflows. Nevertheless, there is one problem I could not solve.


When a user uploads a document to a library, no workflow should start. (User can upload as draft and rework it for instance...) Workfow should only start when  a new major version is published. After that, some approval is running...


May actual probelm starts at document upload. A user should not be allowed to upload a document if there is already some document having the same name.

As I have no experience so far....will that work and can anybody draft the necessary steps I need?
