How do you set up a workflow that automatically sends a email notification to thenew assignee each time the Assigned To: People Picker field changes. Seems simple but I cannot find anything that works.
What should the Conditional Startup Option page look like? What is the Variable? When "Assigned To" is not equal to the previous? I've read some forums regarding adding a text field in the List and doing some kind of compare. Hoping that isn't how this works, and if so, that there is a easier way.
Hi Jennifer. You were on the right track. You can use the Conditional option with the "Start when items are modified" setting. For the Conditional Start Options setting, first check the "Compare to field?" checkbox. Then configure the query as (also see image below):
Assigned To (previous value)
The workflow will only run when the item is modified and the Assigned To field has changed.
