Manually starting a workflow on multiple items simultaneously

Jump to solution

Hi! Can you manually start a workflow on more than one document or item simultaneously by selecting the items and clicking on the workflow button in the ribbon?

Using a SharePoint workflow the workflow button greys out as soon as you select more than one item. Would it work using a Nintex workflow? What is the alternative?

Some time ago I used the following alternative:

-Create a column named "startMyWorkflow" (Yes/No) Type

-Design your workflow to start it when the column "startMyWorkflow"= Yes

Then to start multiple workflows , and viewing my list on spreadsheet mode , I click on the column "startMyWorkflow" to set it as true, so workflow will start.

One of first actions of the workflow was to set again the column "startMyWorkflow" to No.
