I created a workflow that copies the current Item - ItemA to another list ItemB. It works. The problem I have is, the current item has a workflow that sends an email and when the workflow runs, I get two emails, the first from ItemA workflow and the second from the ItemB. When I check Item B, it has no workflow but the fact that it is copied, it runs the ItemA workflow. Is there a way to prevent the copy from running the workflow? Thanks.
It is SharePoint 2013.

Thank you so much. I am going to try that.
The workaround I found was, I made listB the first list and created a copy workflow so it will copy from ListB to ListA instead of ListA to ListB since the workflow that sends the email resides in ListA. When the copy workflow in ListB runs it copies and because it is creating a new record in ListA, it kicks off the workflow. It worked.
