Allow changes to Start Event

Once the workflow is saved with configured Start Event (e.g. Web Form), you are not allowed to change the Start Event for that workflow to other event such as External Start Event. I have a workflow started with Web Form, and the workflow grown to a size, now I wanted to change the Start Event to External Start, I found not way to do it.

Even I have the workflow exported, and created a new workflow and imported the workflow that I have exported. The event still stick to the Public Web Form....

    We will not be pursuing this as the votes have been low and this is not a valid use case for most customers.

    Exporting and importing the workflow will retain the configuration as that's the main use case of supporting the feature. We could have different options of exporting - i.e. retain the action configuration, remove all connections, etc.

    As for merging the various Nintex Start Events as a single item, we have that in the backlog at the moment where if you've selected a "Nintex Connector" - you'd be able to configure the different workflow user interactions - web form, mobile, external start, scheduled start.
