Check to see if a workflow is currently running in the list

I have a situation where I need to ensure that a list workflow is not currently running on any item in the list before I start it.

 

The workflow generates a unique, smart ID number.  If the workflow is currently running on 1 item, and then started on a second, there is the possibility of generating a duplicate ID.

 

I've looked at the Nintex web services, but there doesn't seem to be one to do what I need.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thank you

Ed

Re: Check to see if a workflow is currently running in the list

Hi @ethurber 

 

Would a workflow with a conditional start work for you? You could have a column in the list that the workflow populates after it has been completed.

 

Then in the workflow, you could have a conditional start that examines if that column is populated or not, and then that determines if the workflow should start.

 

I hope that helps,

 

Sumit
