Hello Experts,

I have created a SharePoint 2010 list with a date/time data column ("CurrentDate") and I would like a Nintex 2010 Workflow to add the current date based on the web server every 24hrs (1 day) including weekends.  

Within the attached .txt, please change the file extension to .nwf, you will see where I tried to accomplish this using "Start workflow" to schedule this as a daily event and "Update multiple items" to add this to all rows within the list.  Unfortunately this didn't work.

I have also tried accomplishing this using "Set field value" with a viable and a "Loop" but still no luck.

To clarify I would like this to run based on a schedule an not either when items are added or modified; it should just run automatically.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Regarding this particular issue, the reason I was having issues was because I was attempting to run the scheduler and the update loop within a single workflow.  What I ended up doing was setting up a workflow just to update all items to loop through all the records and then in a completely separate workflow I setup the scheduler that trigger this.

 Once I broke this up into two separate workflows it worked fine.  So, bottom line, if you plan and needing a scheduled event be sure the scheduler is either a separate workflow or run from Site Actions as a  "Schedule Site Workflows".  The point being that it need to be separate from the actual workflow you are trying to trigger.
