Action: Set Next State In Nintex Workflows Through SharePoint 2013 And Office 365


Welcome to an article about an Action: Set Next State in Nintex Workflows. This article will display the action “Set Next State” and how to configure it.

This will involve sets of stages which we can add to the workflow where we can divert the flow to another state according to the requirement, hence easing our task of not doing it manually.

This action can only be placed under the State Machine action and can be used to control the flow of the workflow.

Let’s see how we’ll do it

  • Create a list, Dev Testing.
  • Click on the List tab on the Top ribbon and click on Nintex Workflows.
