I and other users have access to both lists. When I create a new Item on the other list I was hoping I could automatically trigger the workflow on it given the Workflow initiation is a Create or Modify. Yes, I can call the workflow on the other list but is this the only way?
Solved! Go to Solution.
wasn't aware of this but its the same behaviour in my environment. Maybe you should post it to uservoice as I think more people would support that feature.
Yes, there was a discussion somewhere in this forum before, regarding the fact, that the workflow doesn't trigger on events caused by NintexApp - so the system account.
I had thought of using an App Step but I decided I in the end just to call the w/f directly . Seems a lot of hard work but I guess the reason is a synchronisation issue.
This is a restriction in place for all workflows, including SPD workflows, presumably to prevent cascades or infinite loops.
Best option if you know the Id of the item is to start a workflow manually on it.
