Prompt for starting variable values?

Jump to solution

Hey Everyone,

 

Is it possible to have a workflow prompt the user for the starting variables? I set up a workflow that works great when I run manually and it has the starting variable form. but when I set the workflow to start when item is created, somehow it runs anyways despite the fact the starting variables are mandatory causing the workflow to error.

 

Thanks

Brent

Hi,

 

I'm sorry but I think that it's not possible to ask for starting variables when a workflow is automatically started, but this isn't possible also for SharePoint Designer workflows..

 

A possible workaround is to insert at the beginning of the workflow a Request Data action, assigned to the initiator, where you ask him to fill some data, in this way the workflow stay stopped until the data are inserted
