Files Uploaded to Document Library Systematically

Is there a workaround for a workflow to start when a system process upload a document to a SharePoint library? I have see a number of posts in the past but no answer. Would a site workflow work? Can I create a WF that triggers another workflow to start regardless of how the document landed in the library?

 

Regards

When u create a workflow u can set its "start options".

 

Like when a new item is created or when a item is edited.

u have to set create new element "Yes" and when an item is edited to "conditional" and then click on the button which will appear on the right and set it up like this:

Created "equals" Created ... notice that u have to tick the checkbox to do this.

I am using Nintex Workflow for SharePoint 2013. Looks like you are using a different version.

Configuring your workflow to start on new items (start when item is created) should work, since a file is still an item.

@allan not when the item is created by the "System" user. I had that problem myself.

 

@hdabbas could u provide some screenshots so we could guide you through it?

Tried that. No luck. The document is loaded by a System Account. The vendor send it thru FTP, the document then transferrers by an automated job to the SP doc lib.
