I have this slow SITE workflow a co-worker created. I know it can be faster. It takes about 6 minutes and I believe it is because it keeps looking up items inside a loop. First off, I'm working with Nintex and SharePoint 2010. All that is supposed to be accomplished in this workflow is to set item permissions in the workflow. The evaluator needs permission to the workflow and other admins. But nobody else. Here is the deal:
1 list used as a lookup:
LU_GovEvaluator - It has evaluator name and competency in it
SAC - It has a field that points to the evaluator lookup. When that evaluator is selected, the competency automatically gets filled in because the competency comes from the lookup as well.
In the workflow, it is looking up the evaluator list. I am trying to prevent that.
