Can I exclude a field for the conditional start of a workflow? I have a list with open projects and descriptions. There is also a field "New Informations". So when an item is changed, a workflow is running filling this field with "Updated at %Date%". There's also a second workflow started manually which sets the status to "No update". So you can filter the list and see just the updated items.
My problem now is, that the change done by the 2nd workflow triggers the 1st one so everything is always updated...
Can I exclude the status field from the conditional start or can I somehow determine if the change was made by a user or a workflow?
You could consider checking in the wf start condition if Status (previous) still is equal to Status...... or something down the line. Maybe it helps to write down the conditions when WF1 (and WF2) should run in relation the Status field.
you can start workflow conditionally only when status is not equal "No update".
so change made by the other workflow to 'No update' will be ignored.
