Upgrade Wait for Field Change in Current Item action


How to upgrade a Nintex for Office 365 workflow to Nintex Workflow Cloud that contains a Wait for Field Change in Current Item action. 


After Upgrade

  • Your start event Connection property will need to be updated with an existing connection to SharePoint in your NWC environment.
  • Wait for Field Change in Current Item action is upgraded to the SharePoint Online - Wait for event in list item action.
  • You will need to update the Wait for Event in List Item action's SharePoint connection to point to your SharePoint environment.
  • The Event property will be set to "Update list item" for you.



  • The Wait for Event in List Item action allows you to select the event you would like to wait for rather than being specific to a field change(update) event. Events available are New list Item, Update list item, and both as New or update list item.
  • You will now use conditions to set the criteria to evaluate every time a field in your list is updated.
  • You can create conditions based on values in multiple fields. 
  • Conditions can be nested.
  • An output result variable can be created as an object variable. This object variable contains a reference to the item that was created or updated.





The event property will be set to the Update list item event.

You can create an output object variable that contains a reference to the list item that was affected by the event your workflow is waiting for. Use this variable later on in the workflow as required.
