Action: Conditional Branch In Nintex Workflows Through SharePoint 2013 And Office 365

Welcome to an article about an action conditional branch in Nintex Workflows through SharePoint 2013 and Office 365. This article will display the action “Conditional Branch” and how to configure it.

When we build a workflow, we require certain conditions to be fulfilled while our other actions are executed. These conditions can be added on to our action in the workflow where you can assign your other actions based on Yes/No.

Let’s see how we’ll do it.
