I am building a Nintex workflow for a SharePoint 2013 list. I am making continuous changes, and I quickly run up the number of versions. Is there a way to (a) start an unpublished workflow as I am the only one who needs to run it, or (b) to unpublish a workflow so I have version 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, whatever and then publish it as 2.0 when it is ready to show to someone else?
Publishing makes the wf available and connected to the list / library. If not published you can't run it. Versioning:
- Saving changes the lower version level (0.1, 0.2 …)
- Publishing changes the highest version level (1.0, 2.0...)
Develop the wf in a test system or a test list where the users don't have permissions. If it's ready for use transfer it to the prod system. So you will have a version count without any gaps.
