Re: Start workflow with a button

Could you use a button that navigates to the url that is similar to

Site URL/_layouts/15/NintexWorkflow/StartWorkflow.aspx?List={List ID}&ID=ID&WorkflowName=MyWorkflow&Source=Item URL.

Re: Start workflow with a button

Kaylan, Andrew points out the missing part in mine - "?List . . .&ID={ItemID}" for a list workflow. I must have pulled the method for a Site workflow not a list workflow. Once you provide the ListID & the ItemID you should be good.

Re: Start workflow with a button

hi there,

I can see there is a difference between people who are using HTML to program the button and people who just want to start the workflow by pushing a button on a webpage.

Does anyone know if you can start the workflow with a button (without having to learn / edit) HTML code?

Thank you

Best regards

John

Re: Start workflow with a button

John, you can use the Add Custom Action method my replies refer to. This let's you add a custom action to the SharePoint ribbon. You will need the free SharePoint Designer to make the necessary edits though. You don't need any programming to start the workflow since any workflows associated with the list/lib will be available in a pull-down list.

Nintex has documentation on this if I recall correctly.

Good luck

Thanks Gerard, I will attempt to implement this solution (although I may come back with questions!)
