    Conditional Workflow does not start when document name is changed

    Status: Validated

    ISSUE
    When configuring a workflow to start on a specific condition, and the start condition is "Name (previous value)" is not equal "name", the workflow does not start when the document "name" has been modified. 
    ERROR CODE
    RESOLUTION
    This is an expected behaviour due to a limitation on the Microsoft SharePoint platform. 
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    Conditional Start on name change is not possible due to how Microsoft updates that field as it calls a different method compared to the other fields when a change is made. 
    This behaviour applies to Nintex Workflow 2013 and 2016.
