I have a list that contains people and has a manually managed user ID field and a boolean field of 'next person to do something' which is only true for one user at a time.
In a worklow, I want to
1)grab the ID of the person where boolean field = yes and do something
2)set boolean field to false for person in step 1
3)locate the next person via current ID +1 and set boolean to true
I have a workflow variable for the user ID - so steps 1 and 2 are working well. What I don't see in the update item template, how I can update an item where Field equals manipulated worklow data. Is this not possible?
Thanks from a n00b,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just a quick question, would the following scenario work in your situation?
In these steps you will not have to do any math to the user id. So in this scenario, if the user Ids are not in order in the list it will not matter. But you can still loop through all items in the list where boolean field is Yes because you have the list item ID and can query that single item and do anything you want with it within the loop.
Hope that helps,
I'd have to capture the counter in the for loop to be able to properly
update the next entry's boolean to yes, correct?
