Manually start a workflow using a button on a form

Jump to solution

I have a workflow that sends an email.  It is set to manual start only.  I then have a button on my Nintex form that I want to trigger this email when clicked.

 

I cannot get the workflow to start when I click the button.

 

Is there another way to accomplish this?  I want the user to control when the email is sent and not based on some time of condition.

@dfox  in my case when I want to start a wf when pressing a button, I do the following:

1.- Create a number column set it default 0

 

2.-On your button set click Click to - 1 and then connected to- to the number column

 

3.- Add wait for action on your workflow,  set number column to equal 1.

Great idea. I don't seem to be able to get it to work.  Here are the settings I have set up on the button after I created the new number column.

Did I misunderstand one of your steps?

@dfox  Sorry, you have to enter 1 under Value returned, not client click. That should do it.
