Again, let us discuss about a rare scenario with the Nintex Workflows.  I was creating a Workflow WF1 which is attached with a List L1.  Whenever a New Item is added in L1, the WF1 will get triggered.  This works fine.  But in WF1, I am creating an entry on the List L2 which has a WF2 associated.  In this case, the WF2 is triggering when I add a Value manually on L2.  But, when the item got created by WF1, the WF2 is NOT Starting.

After searching for some time, Identified the solution that, the Nintex Workflows will not get started when the Item is created by another Workflow.  Strange.  But, again the work around is nothing but on the WF1 itself, after Creating the entry on the L2, we can start the WF2.  This workaround works fine.  The workflow is as shown below.

There is an action called “Start Workflow” is available in Nintex.  We can Use that action to start the workflow on any Item in the Connection.

 

 

 

The simple work around will save few hours of effort.

 

Happy Coding,
