Welcome to an article on action Parallel Block in Nintex Workflows through SharePoint 2013 and Office 365. This article will display the action “Parallel Block” and how to configure it.

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.

Once the process is over the variable assigned above will store the value and if not it will wait for the parallel actions to get over. If the value becomes true for all the parallel action, the variable will store the value as True and move on to the next action.
