Hello Everybody,

I am using Nintex forms and Workflows in Office 365. I have created a Nintex form cotaining all fields. There are two requirements
1. It must be possible for user to save draft version of the list item without starting the workflow.

2. Before starting the workflow all fields must be filled and validated.

My solution is creating a form which contains two buttons, one for saving list item and the second one for starting the Workflow.

Before you click on the second button it must check all fields are filled and valdiated.
How you can start a Workflow by clicking on a custom button? Do I need to add valdiations inside the workflow or outside it and relying on JavaScirpt? what is the best solution?
Thanks and appreciate all kind of advice.
