Nintex 2013 Workflow Action: "Commit pending changes"

Commit pending changes is not well known action of Nintex, However very useful when you have scenario like I faced.  I had a requirement like first to update the list item, and immediately need to take the count of updated items. I spent quite amount of time to achieve this, First tried by doing simple workflow 1. Update list item 2. Query list (query the same list which updated) Here after running this, started getting uncertain results. Sometime it works and fails. Started applying workarounds to that Tried to apply “Pause for” action in between, like below image. Result was again uncertain, it pause was getting struck, was not resuming the workflow even after specified time. I goggled and found many issues are reported for the same issue, Third workaround was to add some loop which can add some pause before query, somehow even after safe loop, result was uncertain. Finally found the impressive feature of Nintex
